The Accord Party presidential candidate, Prof. Christopher Imumolen, has reiterated his commitment to an issue- and solution-oriented election for the 2023 presidential election.
He said that in order to convince voters, he would analyze the challenges the country faces and his plans to address those challenges and bring shared prosperity to Nigerians.
In a statement on Wednesday from his campaign organization, the 39-year-old presidential candidate explained that his campaign would focus on promoting democratic values, even in his effort to persuade voters to vote.
He denounced the situations where people seeking public office on the eve of important elections make promises to withdraw their promises if elected.
“As a responsible political party, Accord has been actively involved in promoting democratic values, just as we have been at the forefront of improving the quality of life of our people through our various empowerment programs.
“Our popularity stems from what we represent, hence people’s tremendous confidence in our ability, especially at a time when we are aiming for the seat of the country’s president.
“So we’re sticking to this standard that we’ve set, because we’re campaigning not just with promises, but also with solutions.
“Unlike some other participants whose style is vote buying, we would do tangible things that last in people’s lives.
“For example, if you hand out scholarships to thousands of students who are in need of money to help their academic pursuits, or if you provide loans to farmers to improve their agricultural activities, or provide financial support to small and medium-sized enterprises, you are doing something in their lives that sustains.
“I think that’s a much better way to influence people’s lives than trying to buy their votes en masse on Election Day,” the statement said.
The presidential candidate therefore called on his fellow aspirants to show that they care about people’s interests by following his examples of giving to improve lives.
