Chris Imumolen, presidential candidate of the Accord Party, says he would fix Nigeria’s education sector in six months if he is elected president.

 

The Accord Party standard bearer spoke on Thursday during an interactive session organised in Lagos.

 

Imumolen, the youngest candidate in the 2023 presidential race, said as president, the education sector will be allotted about 20 percent of the budget.

 

He said the infrastructural deficit in the sector would also be addressed.

 

 “As president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I will ensure that lecturers will be paid as at when due; that the academic environment will be conducive for all students, and they will have cross-cultural alignments with foreign students as whites and learners from various climes will find the Nigerian education sector so appealing”, he said.

 

Imumolen, the founder of Joint Professional Training Support International (JPTS), won the presidential ticket of the Accord Party in June.

 

The 39-year-old academic was declared the winner of the primary after the other contender in the race stepped down for him.

 

Muhammad Nalado, the national chairman, had described the election of Imumolen as a “sign of victory” for the party.

 

While declaring his interest in contesting the 2023 election in January, Imomolen said he was in the race to address the “leadership deficit” affecting the development of the nation.
