Nollywood actor cum politician, Yul Edochie has taken to Twitter to announce that he is taking a step back from his presidential ambition.
Though the actor based his reason for his decision on his party’s capacity to win a presidential election, a lot of comments claim the candidacy of political gladiators: Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, influenced his resolution.
On Twitter, the actor wrote: “I wanted to run for President with APGA. After much consultations & meetings.
“We sat and did our evaluations. We put sentiments aside & embraced facts. Our party is good but does not have the capacity at the moment to win a Presidential seat. So I didn’t move further.”
