Nollywood actor and erstwhile governorship aspirant, Yul Edochie, has revealed that he is running for the office of the president this coming 2019 general election.

Yul, 36, son of Nollywood legend, Pete Edochie, took to Instagram on Saturday, stating that it is time for the youths of the nation to unite.

In the post, the actor is seen to be running under the party, All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA.

He wrote, “It’s time to bring all these issues to THE LAST BUS STOP! Look around you, we the youths are making Nigeria proud in all areas. It’s time for us to unite.”

The Nollywood actor polled just 145 votes at the conducted governorship election in Anambra State in 2017, losing to winner Willie Obiano present Governor of the state.

Yul stated in a chat with Punch in 2017 that he doesn’t feel bad about the outcome of the election.

He said, “I don’t feel bad about it because it is all politics. A lot of things were done not to favour me, to make sure that I don’t raise my head high. I’m not really angry about it. Even though we did not win, I feel like we won for the Nigerian youths.

Yul has starred in movies such as Unstoppable, My Loving Heart, Mysterious Family, Passion of a Prince and The Affectionate Wife.
