Nollywood actor Yul Edochie has called on Nigerian youth to support him the way they support BBNaija housemate.
The actor turned politician said this in a tweet, while responding to a fan on Twitter, who pleaded with him to run for the presidential office because he is outspoken.
The fan said:
“Pls we need you as the next Nigerian president. U have been so out spoken about the ills and shit that’s happening in this country…
The country needs people like u. Other parts of the world, old men don’t rule as president. Only Africa I see 90yr old men still crave for power.”
In response, Yul said Nigerians youth should learn to support him the way they support BBNsija housemates.
“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 the 14 of July 2017, Yul Edochie declared his intention run for Governor of Anambra State. This declaration was made in anticipation of a Not Too Young To Run Bill. The Bill was passed by the senate of the federal government of Nigeria. The declaration was however made official on the 22nd of August 2017, when he picked up the nomination form of the political party “Democratic Peoples Congress”and was eventually the flag bearer and gubernatorial candidate of the party to run for governor of Anambra State.
