2023 elections’ outcome will surprise many – Accord’s Imumolen

The Accord Party presidential candidate, Prof. Christopher Imumolen, on Friday, said the 2023 elections will produce many surprises.

He added that the outcomes of the election will surprise many Nigerians, with claims that the frontline candidates may fail to win the presidential election as being assumed by many.

In a statement on Friday by his campaign organisation, Imumolen while sharing plans on how to win next year’s election said a candidate with a detailed strategy like him will win the presidential election and not noise.

He said he believed more in quietly winning converts to imbibe his dream of generational change in running Nigeria’s affairs than dissipating energy canvassing for votes on social media platforms.

According to him, my well-articulated strategy that will focus on mobilising Nigerians to buy into transformation and the change agenda is the game changer.

“Let me say this, next year’s elections are going to produce a few surprises because it is those who come into the race with a well-articulated strategy that would carry the day. I am a strategist and I have been all my life.

“I have been planning this for 15 years through affecting the lives of people. I have been building my structure from the grassroots, by the use of empowerment programmes and mass mobilisation.

“If it was due to the level of noise one could make on social media, I would probably not have won the Accord party primaries.

“I know of candidates who made so much noise in the media but failed to get nominated for the positions they sought because they failed the acid test of putting sound strategies in place.

“As a matter of fact, I beat candidates who were more vociferous, more vocal than I was during our own primaries.

“And I tell you. While they were busy making their noise, I was more concerned with how I’d get people to vote for me. Yes, my concern is to see how Nigerians will turn out in their numbers to vote for me and my party on election day.

“To do that, I must convince them that I am the man that has the answers to their problems as far as running Nigeria is concerned.

“As I speak, we are planning on how to get voters, agents to vote as well as represent us in all the 176,000 polling booths across the country on election day.

“Publicity is good. But not at the expense of real strategy to win the required votes to become the president of a country like Nigeria,” he added.
