Nollywood Veteran Actor, Chief Pete Edochie Endorses Son, Yul For 2023 Presidency

Nigerian Veteran Nollywood actor, Chief Pete Edochie, has plainly endorsed his son, Yul, for the 2023 presidential race in Nigeria.

The actor, Yul broke the news in a video shared on his social media pages on Thursday, February 11 with the caption : 
“My Father Chief Pete Edochie endorses my 2023 Presidential ambition. God Almighty, take absolute control.”

In the video, the Veteran Actor disclosed that the endorsement follows countless pleas from young people asking him to openly support his son’s bid for the country’s highest political office and he has no choice but to agree to their demands.

The actor also expressed confidence that his son possesses the right qualities and values and drive to steer the country forward.

He said while he is not interested in politics, he would not hold back his support for his son who has decided to go into politics. He said,

“My values are very strong. I have my 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."

Yul knelt before his dad while he rains blessings and prayers on him. The Veteran actor said, "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."

Yul will be running under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) party.
