Widely considered one of Africa’s most talented actors, being honored with an Industry Merit Award by Africa Magic and Lifetime Achievement by Africa Film Academy, Chief Pete Edochie – MON, has publicly endorsed his son, Actor Yul Chibuike Daniel Edochie’s presidential ambition in 2023. Popularly known as Yul Edochie, the actor has hinted that he will seek election as Nigeria’s president in 2023.

In 2017, Yul contested for the governorship election in Anambra on the platform of Democratic Peoples Congress (DPC). He was later appointed Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Creative & Entertainment Media to the Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, in July 2018. The actor, however, resigned a few months later and defected from APGA to join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Yul Edochie began his sojourn into Nollywood in 2005 when he starred in a movie titled, ‘The Exquirers’, alongside late veteran actors, Justus Esiri and Enebeli Elebuwa. He made his hit in 2007 after featuring alongside Genevieve Nnaji and Desmond Elliot in the movie ‘Wind of Glory’.

In a video posted on Yul’s social media, His father 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, not all your children are bound to follow you.”

“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 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 present him to you. He has my blessing. He has my endorsement.”

“Any day he decides to veer off from the discipline under which he was raised, l will withdraw him from the race. It shall be well with you son. Since it has been your ambition to go into politics and the desire to run for the presidency of this country, may the good Lord assist you, protect and direct you.”
