Nollywood actor and politician, Yul Edochie has hinted his interest in running for President.
While reacting to a tweet in which a follower advised him to contest the presidential seat for being outspoken, Yul stated that if he is supported the way youths support BBNaija housemates, he will surely become Nigeria’s next president.
According to Yul, he will unite the country and appoint credible people for public offices.
“If Nigerian youths will realise the power they have & support me the way they support BBNaija housemates, I’ll surely become Nigeria’s next President & best President ever. I’ll unite this country & appoint credible men & women to work with irrespective of tribe or religion.”
On July 14, 2017, Yul declared his intention to run for the governorship seat in Anambra State.
This declaration was made in anticipation of a Not Too Young To Run Bill passed by the Nigerian senate.
The declaration was however made official on August 22, 2017, when he picked up the nomination form of the Democratic Peoples Congress and was eventually the flag bearer of the party in Anambra State.
