“No regrets going into politics, I have come to stay” – Actor Yul Edochie
After losing out to the incumbent governor in the recently conducted Anambra State gubernatorial elections, Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie said he has no regrets still from taking a break from the movie industry to venture into politics.
In a recent chat with pressmen, the actor who has returned to acting said he is happy he made an impact as a youth in politics.
“No regrets at all. I’m happy I ventured into it and I have come to stay in politics. And I urge more Nigerian youths to come into politics. We all need to know how our state and country is being run and make contributions. 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. I gained so much experience, which I couldn’t have gotten elsewhere. It brought me closer to the people and I witnessed various problems, which different communities in Anambra are facing. Through me, their voices will be heard,” he stated.
Concerning what’s next for him in the movie scenes, Edochie assured fans to be ready for him, as he plans to make up for the lost days.
“Well, for now, I can’t list out what’s next for me, but fans should be watchful. I left acting and directing for months for politics and a lot of my people missed me. I missed them too. I’ll be back. I also don’t plan to make movies out of my campaign experience.”
