This was made public in a video posted by Yul on his Twitter account on Thursday.
Yul engrossed the video, “My Father Chief Pete Edochie endorses my 2023 Presidential ambition. God Almighty, take absolute control.”
In the video, the Pete Edochie spoke about raising his children in a disciplinary manner, and according to 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, not all your children are bound to follow you.
“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’s disciplined, he’s 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.”
Edochie senior said he would withdrawal his support for Yul’s political ambition any day Yul decided to wear off from the discipline under which he was raised.
Pete Edochie later blessed his son on his ambition and pray to God to support him.
Yul, who is also an actor, dabbled into politics in 2017 when he contested for the governorship seat of Anambra State against the incumbent governor of the State.
Yul is yet to disclosed the political party under which he will be contesting the presidency. Whether it will be “Democratic Peoples Congress” under which he contested the governorship race in Anambra State in 2017 or he will change his party.
