Yul Edochie declares to run for 2019 presidential election
After losing in the last Anambra governorship election, Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has declared his interest to run and become Nigeria’s president come 2019.
‘Edochie, who contested the November 2017 Anambra governorship election on the platform of the Democratic Peoples Congress (DPC) but joined the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, after he lost, made the announcement on his Instagram page.
Read what he wrote below:
“Today I declare my interest to run for President of the greatest country in the world, Nigeria.
A blessed country that has been crippled by decades of bad leadership.
Enough is Enough!
Fellow Nigerians, stand with me let us bring the problems of our country to the THE LAST BUS STOP!!!”
With his declaration for presidency, Yul Edochie is running against incumbent President Buhari, who he had advised not to run for re-election come 2019.
Back in January, Yul had called out President Muhammadu Buhari in a viral Instagram video where he told Buhari:
“I hear you want to run for the second time in office I decided to do this video, please sir don’t bother. I don’t think Nigeria, Nigerians can endure four or more years of whats going on right now. Believe its really terrible, the hardship is too much,” Yul said.
