Veteran nollywood actor Pete Edochie has publicly endorsed his son who is also an actor , Yul Edochie, To Contest for the presidential seat in the coming elections which will be held in February 2023.
He stated that his endorsement is as a result of the continuous request and appeals from a lot of young Nigerians who have been calling him and asking him to support his son , Yul to run for presidency come 2023.
He says: “One of my son’s who is incidentally an actor has decided that he wants to be a politician. Most of the youngsters have been bugging my phone, asking me to endorse him that they want him as president and I get amused. But they keep insisting, daddy we want Yul as president of this country, we like him.
He is disciplined, sympathetic and he believes a lot in people. They have bothered me so much that today, I hereby present him to you. He has my Blesssing , he has my endorsement.
Any day he decides to veer off from the discipline under which he was raised , I will withdraw him from the fight. I give you my word”.
He further went on to pray for him and wished him success in his endeavor.
