As one whose patriotism is deep rooted, and one with immense value for his nativity and people, Prof. Christopher Imumolen at the weekend, thrilled his teeming supporters when he went home to Ekpoma to announce his preparation to become the next president of Nigeria.
The visit which was jointly paid by mammoth supporters and associates who came from all parts of Nigeria saw Prof Imumolen visit critical traditional/royal stakeholders in Esan Ekpoma, prime which was the Enogie of Ekpoma.
It was indeed a massive fiesta of some sort as the youths, men and women from the length and breadth of Esan Land trooped out in celebration of their son who has volunteered to serve the nation from the topmost position to make them proud.
Royal and traditional blessings coupled with blessed wishes from the people followed at the august gathering which also attracted cultural displays, great jubilation and festivity as the people could not contain their joy.
The Enogie of Ekpoma, HRH Zaiki Abumere II, who was visibly happy saluted Prof Imumolen for his courage and readiness to serve the nation and bring back honour to Esan Land.
He also gave his blessing, stressing that the entire Esan Land, Edo state and indeed the South South region are already in support.
According to the royal father, Nigeria needs a young and vibrant patriot like Imumolen to steer our ship of state aright this crucial moment of our national life.
In reaction, Prof Imumolen promised that he will not only make his people proud, but will irreversibly take Nigeria into the map of developed and safe nations, urging all Nigerians to join him on the march to permanently dislodge pain, fear and hopelessness from our dear country Nigeria in 2023.
He also hailed his supporters for the godly sacrifices and solidarity they have shown thus far on this redemptive exodus to national freedom, assuring that his emergence as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 2023 will bring total succour to all Nigerians, ehnicity, class and religion notwithstanding, pointing that his All for All mantra speaks volumes of this promise.
Presidential Imumolen is the presidential candidate of the Accord Party, the youngest, most educationally qualified and arguably the most patriotic in the race.
