Veteran actor, Pete Edochie has endorsed his son and actor, Yul for the presidency in 2023. This was revealed in a video posted by Yul on his verified Instagram page on Thursday.
He captioned the video, “My Father Chief Pete Edochie endorses my 2023 Presidential ambition. God Almighty, take absolute control.”
In the video, the older Edochie talked about his religious beliefs as a Catholic and the values he grew up with.
He said, “My values are very strong. I have my own children and they are very strong in that regard too. I am not one to be involved in politics. But you see, no all you children are bound to follow you,” he said.
“One of my sons, who incidentally is an actor, has decided that he wants to be a politician. Most of the youngsters have been bugging my phone asking me to endorse my son that they want him as president and l get amused.
“But they keep insisting daddy, we want Yul to be the president of this country.
“We like him. He is disciplined, sympathetic, he believes a lot in people. They have bothered me so much that today, I’m hereby presenting him to you. He has my blessing. He has my endorsement.”
