Nollywood star and politician Yul Edochie has indicated he is interested in running for the 2023 presidential election.
Edochie, who clocked 39 on January 7, 2021, expressed his interest in electing him president after sharing a photo of him on Instagram.
On July 14, 2017, Yul Edochie declared his intention to elect him Governor of the State of Anambra. This statement was made in anticipation of a Not Too Young To Run Bill passed by the Senate of the Federal Government of Nigeria.
However, the statement was made official on August 22, 2017 when he took up the nomination form of the political party “Democratic Peoples Congress” and eventually was the flag bearer and government candidate of the party to elect him for the governor of the state of Anambra.
His caption reads: “Happy 39th birthday to me. Last year I asked for wisdom, You gave it to me Lord.
‘This year I ask for your mercy, O Lord, as I prepare to present myself as President of Nigeria in 2023. To bring about true peace, unity and progress.
‘The youth deserve a chance to correct our people, so we help God. Amen!
