Nollywood star and son of veteran Nigerian actor Pete Edochie, Yul Edochie has taken to his instagram page to declare his intention to run for the Governor of Anambra State in 2017 although he is yet to indicate under the party he will be running under.
It is not a new thing for Actors to delve into politics anymore in Nigeria,famous actors like Richard Mofe Damijo and Desmond Elliot have successfully held political positions in the past but not in the capacity of Governor. We’ve only heard about such stories in places like the US where Arnold Schwarzenegger became the Governor of California after a very successful career as an actor. There is always a first time. Yul Edochie has dared to dream and we wish him all the best .
