Controversial Nollywood actor and politician, Yul Edochie, has confessed why he suspended his presidential ambitions ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Recall that the thespian had previously declared his intention to run for the presidency under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
Terminating his interest in the presidential office the father of five took to his official Twitter page moments ago to reveal that he’s no longer running for the post.
According to him, after a series of meetings and consultations, he concluded that his party could not win a presidential election at the moment.
The former presidential aspirant in his tweet wrote:
“I wanted to run for President with APGA. After much consultation and meetings, We sat and did our evaluations. We put sentiments aside and 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.”
