Yul Edochie, Nollywood actor and the son of veteran movie star, Mr Pete Edochie, Friday went to his Instagram page to place a campaign poster that has his image encrypted on it, saying “My name is Yul Edochie. And I’m running for Governor of Anambra State. 2017. #TheLastBusStop.
He equally stated that Nigerians need a new brand of leaders who will put the masses first, hammering that the older ones have failed the country. In his words, “We need a new brand of Leaders who will put the masses first. The older ones have failed us for too long…
They have come to THE LAST BUS STOP!!! The young Edochie however, did not mention the political party he intends contesting from. But reacting to his post, some followers who supported him, said that, it is time for Nigeria to have an intelligent, energetic, young and vibrant youth who will help address our political system for a viable economy.
Whereas other supporters dramatically quizzed him with; which political party are you vying the position from? If the 35 year old actor wins, he will be the first democratically elected governor in Nigeria and among few entertainers who have succeeded in achieving their political goals like Desmond Elliot who is currently representing Surulere 1 constituency at the Lagos state house of assembly.
