Expert Answer:

When one/some charge is accumulated somewhere then it creates a potential. If at the both end of a wire the difference in potential is produced(with the help of battery, where at one electrode +ve chares and on another electrode -ve charges are accumulated)then electrons in the wire flow from higher potential to lower potential.
Just like: water flows from greater height to lower or rather from higher pressure to lower pressure area.
