Professor Christopher Imumolen, the presidential candidate of the Accord Party, will be in Lomé today (Monday) to meet with the Nigerian community there as his campaign for the office of Nigeria’s president gains traction.
As the first presidential candidate to visit the nation’s diasporans in the West African sub-region, the flagbearer of the Accord party will undoubtedly be blazing a trail in the annals of electioneering campaigns in the country.
The Accord presidential candidate will visit Nigerians and Nigerian descendants in Lomé (Togo), Cotonou (Benin Republic), Accra (Ghana), and Monrovia (Liberia).
Professor Christopher Imumolen campaigns to ECOWAS nations
This was according to an itinerary released early on Monday, October 24, 2022, as he kicks off the first phase of his tour of some ECOWAS countries.
The initiative, he says, is to engage and interact with these diasporas about how to free the country from the suffocating grip of what he calls “clueless leadership” and “redirect it on the path of prosperity.”
Imumolen is scheduled to begin his tour today (Monday) at 5 p.m. with an address to Nigerians and people of Nigerian descent at the Salle Carre Kegue Stadium in Lomé.
During a dinner event, he will also speak to a group of Christian and Muslim leaders from the diaspora.
And perhaps the highlight of his visit will be when he meets with Nigerian natives in the Benin Republic after the Lomé meeting.
According to statistics, the Benin Republic is home to approximately 6 million Nigerians, accounting for half of the total estimated 12 million Beninese population.
Many political analysts regard Imumolen’s latest move as a masterstroke, given that many of his colleagues in the presidential race have frequently preferred visiting more exotic destinations.
Places like the United States, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, and Canada, among others, to ventilate their political aspirations.
Professor Christopher Imumolen’s words
Imumolen stated, “I will prefer not to be drawn into arguments about why my co-aspirants for Nigeria’s presidential seat prefer to visit the US, UK, UAE, and Canada to sell their manifestos,” he said.
“It could be for different reasons. I have heard that some do it to get donations or whatever.
“Anyhow, I’d prefer to talk about myself, my manifesto, and what I have for our people both within and outside Nigeria.
“What I am doing with these visits is consistent with my philosophy of engaging the people, feeling their pulse, and fashioning ways to bring relief to their many areas of need.
“I am sure that at the end of this first phase, the exact objective of consistently demonstrating true sincerity and all-inclusiveness in governance will be all too glaring for everyone to see,” he continued.
Imumolen says he also plans to visit other countries before the elections in February of next year.
