Professor Christopher Imumolen, a renowned academic, with professorial chair in three universities and a standing record of philanthropy, helping young Nigerians to excel in their endeavours spoke on the dilapidated state of the country in world press conference as he urged everyone to stand up as one, not just to speak against the government, but for the birth of a new Nigeria.
Imumolen believes that Nigeria must get her leadership right. He is of the view that the problems facing Nigeria are self made. He said people are dying everyday in Nigeria, even from the least illness caused by malaria, which he said can be cured with one thousand naira.
He said the number of people who die within a short time in Nigeria outweighs those who died in the war zones in Ukraine.
Speaking further, he said Nigeria is under serious threat and that there is the need for concerned Nigerians to speak up for the liberation of the country. Imumolen said he is not speaking because of his Presidential ambition, but that he has been speaking like this for the past 15 years so that Nigeria can get back itself and regain its position in the comity of nations.
Imumolen who noted that the security architecture of Nigeria did not only collapse but that Nigeria never had one in the first place. “There was no deliberate planned growth to ensure that the security of Nigeria can match up with geometric rate at which Nigeria is growing”.
Speaking on the Abuja-Kaduna train tragedy, where people lost their lives and many were injured, he said Nigeria is no longer safe. “We can no longer travel through the road, air or railway. He said all these are as a result of lackadaisical attitude and incompetence of those who run the affairs of this country, hence the Nigerian government and Nigerian people should begin to work very fast to ensure Nigerian lives are safe.
The young philanthropist, who, over the decade provided educational kits for over 15,000 children across Nigeria through his NGO, UNIC Foundation, in partnership with Joint Professional Training Support (JPTS ) Institute, and scholarship opportunities for over 4000 Africans, says security infrastructure is being threatened because these young people who are supposed to be learning, are left out there on the street due to the continuous strike of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
“I am speaking not just because I am a presidential hopeful with the Accord Party, I am speaking because I am a concerned Nigerian”. He added
Imumolen, said his immense contributions in developments over the years were done, not out of politics, but because he wants to impact lives. He said from all indications, it is obvious that Nigerians want a new Nigeria and he is coming into politics from the highest hierarchy to solve problems and give Nigerians the good life they so desired.
