Professor Christopher Imumolen, Accord Party’s (AP) presidential candidate, was recently honoured by Forbes magazine with the ‘Outstanding Academic Achievement Award 2022’.
According to a citation read on his behalf by the awards panel, Prof. Imumolen earned the recognition for demonstrating academic excellence to reach the zenith of his academic quests.
The panel also recognised him for consistently ensuring that less privileged persons get the opportunity to access education to maximise their potential through his scholarship initiatives.
Reacting to the award, the 39-year-old presidential aspirant dedicated the award to God and vowed to continue the giant strides he has made in empowering humanity through education in the last 13 years.
“I want to dedicate this award to the Almighty God for the grace He gave me to embark on this journey, which started 13 years ago,” Prof. Imumolen said.
“Without God, it would have been impossible to achieve so much in terms of the numbers of people we have been able to support with both educational training systems and our scholarship schemes.
“I am proud to accept the Forbes Best of Africa: Outstanding Academic Achievement Award 2022. The recognition means a lot to me because it is a bold statement by Forbes on how they view the work I have been doing to illuminate the minds of millions of people globally.
“For us, this award is a pat on the back, and it is certain to inspire us to do more in the coming years.”
Prof. Imumolen is the youngest candidate in the presidential race.
