YUL EDOCHIE: I wasn't threatened to dump my presidential ambition

It is no news that Nollywood actor Yul Edochie has all but given up on his ambition to contest for the presidency with many wondering why he dumped his dream all so suddenly.

The actor, however, has moved to clear the air that he may have been threatened into giving up his ambition in a post on Twitter.

In the post, Yul said he was not under any form of threat to drop his decision on contesting for the presidency.

“After due considerations and consultations, I will no longer run for President of Nigeria in 2019. To my supporters, worry not. I remain committed to building a new Nigeria that works for all, irrespective of class, tribe or religion. Together we shall achieve it.”

Yul’s decision is coming days after ‘Ghetto Soldier’, John Asiemo, famously known in music circles as Daddy Showkey signaled his intention to run for an elective post to help Nigerians especially in Ajegunle, his birthplace, and its environs.

The performer who said he is seriously considering the move because of the situation in Ajegunle made that much known during an interview session on Rubbin Minds, a TV show, hosted by Ebuka Obi-Uchendu.
