Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, who was one of the candidates in Anambra State Governorship election which Willie Obiano emerged winner, in a new interview with Sunnews said he doesn’t regret taking a break from the movie industry to venture into Politics.
According to the father of three, he is happy he made an impact as a youth in politics.
“No regrets at all. I’m happy I ventured into it and I have come to stay in politics. And I urge more Nigerian youths to come into politics.
We all need to know how our state and country is being run and make contributions. If you are not part of the solution then you are part of the problem. 95% of the people in Nigerian politics are there to grab money, they don’t care about giving the people good governance.
I gained so much experience, which I couldn’t have gotten elsewhere. It brought me closer to the people and I witnessed various problems, which different communities in Anambra are facing. Through me, their voices will be heard,” he stated.
Recall, the Nigerian actor and flagbearer of Democratic People’s Congress in the just concluded Anambra State 2017 Gubernatorial election reacted to being left out of Gubernatorial debate organized by Channels TV for the Governorship aspirants.
Yul Edochie who was still optimistic about winning regardless of the debate, tweeted;
“I wasn’t invited to the debate. But its nothing to worry about. We’ll keep the spirit high and keep campaigning. Its time for the masses to have a say. November 18th, stand with me, the future is in our hands.”
