Yul Edochie, Nollywood actor turned politician, under the umbrella of Democratic Peoples Congress (DPC), against all odds, contested during the Anambra governorship election and secured a total of 145 votes.
Stressful but I would do it all over again for the good of the people, the youths. I think I saw my loss coming towards the end. Three days to election some of my party members went to pay allegiance to another party, accepted money from them and said that I had stepped down. Which they didn’t discuss with me before doing. And it went viral.
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. So if we keep waiting for them to change things then we are wasting our time. We need more good people of integrity to come in and kick start the real change we want. Well, I left acting and directing for months to achieve this. And a lot of my people missed me. I missed them too. I’ll be back”
