What does he offer?

In an interview with Premium Times, the 35 year old governorship aspirant discussed reasons for the big and bold step. He said “Politicians have failed us. So, I am in the race to touch the lives of Anambra people positively. The people are tired of stories. The Anambra youth have an opportunity to show Nigerians if truly they feel it’s their time to rule or not.” He further went on to make promises “I want to become the next governor of Anambra State because I want to reduce poverty in the state, create jobs and rescue the future of the youth. I joined the race to harness the creative potentials of the youths and the resource-endowment of Anambra to move the state to the next level of development. I will also ensure the provision of infrastructure and development of critical sectors in the state is my agenda if elected.”

Yul Edochie contests under a party called People’s Democratic Congress (P.D.C). He wants an association with a youth dominated party.

What does Yul Edochie’s Slogan mean?

The most interesting thing about Yul Edochie’s campaign is the Slogan, “The Last Bus-Stop”. The slogan translates as Anambra people have come to the last bus-stop. It apparently means that he becoming governor, would be the last-bus stop of backwardness for the Anambra people.

As much as we like this young handsome actor to win the forthcoming election we beg him to keep to his promises if he wins.  We Nigerians are tired of politicians making empty promises. Will Yul Edochie fail us?
