Prof Chris Imumolen, presidential aspirant of the Accord Party, made mention the right time for youth to be Nigeria’s president is 2023.
Presidential aspirant told journalists during his Presidential Southern Leadership and Consultative meeting, that though he believe that a youth could become president after the 2023 general elections, it was imperative to reject the past and present leaders of the country who have not taken the country to no where economically.
Chris Imumolen said, “A country with a population of over 200 million certainly is a great country and such leadership will go a long way to make it a great place. Youths in the country between the ages of 18 and 35 are more than older generations, yet the country has been unable to translate the energy of its young population into development.
“Unfortunately, young Nigerians don’t only suffer marginalisation from a government that is run by a gerontocracy. They are also the victims of bad governance.
“Therefore, my ambition is to move the country forward and I believe with new ideologies youthful and vibrant ambition Nigeria is on the right part and Nigeria will be great. This is why I asked Nigerians to vote for people like me during the general elections if I am able to secure my Party ticket.”
