I Will Make Tinubu Adviser, Peter Obi Trade Minister- Imumolen

The presidential candidate of Accord Party, Professor Christopher Imumolen, has promised to run an inclusive government, by making Bola Tinubu, a special adviser while Peter Obi will be the Trade Minister.


NewsOnline reports thatImumolen said the task of building the country requires the inclusion of all Nigerians who have something to offer including fellow contestants.


The Accord Party presidential candidate said everyone who has the idea and capacity to add value to governance will be given the opportunity in his administration if elected next month to contribute to Nigeria’s development. He said under his administration, it will not be a one-man show.




“The task of rebuilding our country is an onerous one. It is not going to be a one-man show. Everyone who has the idea, and capacity to add value to governance, no matter their background or party affiliations, shall be called upon to do so,” Professor Imumolen said on Sunday.


Imumolensaid he will appoint Peter Obi, Labour Party presidential candidate, minister of trade and commerce because of his adeptness and aptitude as a businessman of no mean standing.


For Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Accord Party candidate said he will appoint him as an adviser on political front for obvious reasons.


He said, “For his adeptness and aptitude as a businessman of no mean standing, I will be appointing Peter Obi, the current Labour Party presidential candidate as my minister of trade and commerce, while Asiwaju Bola Ahmed 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.”


Speaking further, Imumolen said, “As I have said, 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 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.”
