The presidential candidate of the Accord Party, Prof. Chris Imulomen, has stated that the challenges facing the country are not those which a president who is 70 years of age or older can tackle.
According to Imulomen, Nigeria needs a youthful mind that is at the peak of his career to lead the country out of its current doldrums.
Imumolen said this at a meeting with stakeholders of the Accord Party in Kano, where he noted that the major challenge facing the country is disunity, adding that if he becomes president, all that will become history.
“Nigerians are suffering across board,” he said. “We need a leader that is at the peak of his career; not a leader that is almost declining. We don’t need an 80-year-old or 70-year-old president.
“The problems of Nigeria need a youthful mind to engage them. I am the only candidate that will tackle insecurity; that will tackle unemployment; that will take all Nigerians as one. There will not be a difference between youths in the north and the south,” added the 39-year-old.
He said that Accord as a party is one that represents unity; therefore, a president from the party is a guarantee of unity for the country.
Imulomen said: “If you have a president that is from Accord, do you know the meaning of Accord? Accord means oneness and progress. The party represents unity.”
