Professor Imumolen kicked-off his tour with an address to Nigerians and Nigerian descendants at the Salle Carre Kegue Stadium in Lome on Monday, October 24 by 5pm.

He also spoke to a group of Christian and Muslim leaders in diaspora during a special dinner afterwards.

Imumolen's latest move is seen by many political analysts as a masterstroke considering the fact that many of his colleagues in the presidential race have often preferred visiting more exotic destinations like the US, UK, UAE, and Canada, etc, to ventilate their political aspirations.

He said:

“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.

“It could be for different reasons. I have heard that some do it for the purpose of getting donations, or whatever.
“Anyhow, I'd prefer to talk about myself, my 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.”

Professor Imumolen says he also plans to extend his visit to other countries before the elections scheduled for February next year.

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 choose 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.
