Christopher Imumolen, presidential candidate of the Accord Party (AP), says he’ll run an “all-inclusive” government if elected in next month’s election.
Mr Imumolen specifically mentioned that he would appoint the duo of Peter Obi of the Labour Party and the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu into his government if given the chance to rule.
“For his adeptness and aptitude as a businessman of no mean standing, I will appoint Peter Obi as my minister of trade and commerce, while Asiwaju Bola Tinubu will serve as an adviser, most probably on the political front for obvious reasons.
“You will agree with me that these men will most be suitable in the roles I have earlier mentioned because of their track records in both their private and public lives,” he said on Monday.
Mr Imumolen would be joining 17 other contenders, including Messrs Tinubu and Obi in the February 25 presidential election.
The candidates are already in battle wits ahead of the polls to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari, who would be leaving office in May 29.
Speaking further, Mr Imumolen said that it won’t be a “one-man show” if given the chance to govern the country, noting that Nigeria needs people with ideas and the capacity to grow its economy.
He explained that he was ready to solicit the assistance of the “best brains” in different fields to man the different sectors of the country and contribute their quota.
“The move is meant to demonstrate that we are all partners in progress in our desire to see our country regain its lost glory, as well as deliver to its millions of citizens the true dividends of democracy.
“The move is also meant to send the message that appointments will only be given to those who merit it in the kind of reformist government we are planning to run,” the AP presidential candidate said.
He further added that “The concept of square pegs in square holes shall be the guiding principles of our government under the umbrella of Accord, the party that preaches oneness and togetherness.”
