  • Nigeria's younger generation can actively participate in the country's political process due to the the 'Not Too Young To Run' bill
  • The bill signed by President Muhammadu Buhari has paved the way for an unprecedented upsurge of candidates of youth extraction ahead of 2023.
  • A young presidential candidate has advised the youths to use the opportunity provided by the new law by installing one of their own as president

FCT, Abuja - Nigerian youths have been urged to elect leaders that can help them maximise their potentials in a country now with less and less opportunities for self actualisation as the stage is getting set for the 2023 general elections.

This is the view of Accord presidential candidate, Professor Christopher Imumolen who insists there can be no better time than now for generational change to happen in Nigeria's politics.

“With my track record of service to Nigerians, including the youths at different levels and capacities; where we have solved problems at micro and macro levels, touching lives, offering scholarships and empowering women and farmers.
“I think I am eminently qualified to administer the affairs of this country if given the mandate by the people.
“How to know a leader who is a problem solver, and who is committed to the welfare of the people is no rocket science. It is evidential. Leadership is the things you do to positively impact the lives of the ordinary man out there.

“That is why I am usually not perturbed when people tell me I lack leadership experience because I haven't held a political office before.
“But tell me, how much experience did Nelson Mandela have before he became president of a post-apartheid South Africa?
“Yet, Mandela was a far better leader than all those who came before him because he was driven by one thing -- the passion to see a better life for the people of his country.
“That is the same passion that is motivating me. I want to see a better Nigeria where things work, where things will be done differently.”

Strategy, not noise will win me 2023 presidency, says Imumolen

Recall that Imumolen recently stated that he will depend on a well articulated strategy to win the 2023 presidential election.

In a related development, Professor Imumolen has revealed why he decided to join a fresh party other than the existing ones like the People's Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress to contest for the 2023 presidential election.

Professor Imumolen said he chose the Accord Party as the platform from where he would ventilate his political aspirations to give a fresh view of what he feels governance should look like.

He said the so-called big political parties that have had the opportunity to govern the country throughout the life of the 4th Republic and have largely failed to deliver the true dividends of democracy because of an entrenched system that seems not to work.
