Nollywood actor and politician Yul Edochie has revealed he will be running for the 2023 presidential election.
Yul made this known on his Instagram page yesterday, February 11. He shared a video of his father Veteran Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie endorsing him for the 2023 presidential election.
Pete referring to his religious beliefs as a Catholic and the values he grew up with, he said;
“My values are very strong. I have my own children, and they are very strong in that regard too. I am not one to be involved in politics. But you see, no all you children are bound to follow you,” he said.
“One of my sons, who incidentally is an actor, has decided that he wants to be a politician. Most of the youngsters have been bugging my phone asking me to endorse my son that they want him as president and l get amused. But they keep insisting on daddy we want Yul to be the president of this country.
“We like him. He is disciplined, sympathetic; he believes a lot in people. They have bothered me so much that today, I’m hereby presenting him to you. He has my blessing. He has my endorsement.”
Yul captioned the video;
“My Father, Chief Pete Edochie endorses my 2023 Presidential ambition. God Almighty, take absolute control.”
