“Apart from serving as the platform upon which we would be consolidating on our campaigns for next year's presidential elections, we hope it will send the right message to the right quarters that we have an organised structure and national spread.
“Contrary to widespread notion, we are not a mushroom party that has its support base situated in only a section of the country.
“Neither are our supporters those who only speak on social media. We are in the six geopolitical zones of the country and this new campaign office in Abuja today proves it.”
Professor Imumolen also used the occasion to urge Nigerians to work with him and his party, Accord in the task of saving the country from desperate, clueless leaders, and reposition it for greatness.
“I will also like to use this opportunity to ask well meaning Nigerians to join hands with me and our party, Accord in the task of rescuing our collective destinies from the grip of desperate, clueless and expired leaders who have kept us in a perpetual state of stagnation.
“This is no time to dance to the rhythm of ethnicity, religion, party affiliation, or bribery. This is the time to close ranks, irrespective of where we come from, our religion or those we used to vote for, and pick the right candidate who genuinely believes in Nigeria and would work for Nigerians.
“I am that de-tribalised Nigerian with the knowledge, capacity, passion, empathy and drive to salvage this country. A vote for me is a vote for a glorious tomorrow for us, for our children and our children's children.”

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.

Meanwhile, Imumolen has declared that he has the attributes that places him head and shoulders above his other opponents in next year's presidential elections.
Acknowledging that his 17 other rivals are men of exemplary pedigrees in their chosen areas of expertise, Imumolen said he is the man that has the x-factor when it comes to how much they have impacted society in developmental initiatives, as well as human capacity building.
He stated that he has made huge sacrifices over a decade and half, launching and sustaining initiatives that has helped to add value to the lives of Nigerians, including those who once held public offices in the country.
