Dreams die in Nigeria – Yul Edochie
Recently, a lot of entertainers have shown interest in the political sphere and this is some sought of an eye opener for the general public as entertainers have a huge following.
Nigerian actor cum politician, Yul Edochie is one amongst other entertainers who are taking it upon themselves to change the failed system of government in Nigeria.
The young politician shared a story of his friend who almost had his dreams shattered in Nigeria, only to get out of the country and boom!!! his dreams were achievable.
“My friend hustled as a practicing medical doctor for over 10yrs in Nigeria with nothing much to show for it.
He left Nigeria last yr to practice abroad, came back one yr after, got married, boughts lands, building his house and happy.
Dreams die here.
We can’t continue like this”
Yul Edochie on Monday, April 23, 2018 took to his Instagram page to declare his intention for running for Presidency.
“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!!!” he wrote.
Recall the actor, a candidate of the Democratic Peoples Congress, DPC, polled 145 votes in the 2017 governorship election in Anambra State.
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in its final result showed that the actor who is also the son Nollywood veteran, Pete Edochie came 19 out of 37 contenders that jostled for the governorship stool.
Yul’s move to run from presidency has shown that the actor isn’t giving up on moving the country forward.
