Ahead of the 2023 general elections, Nollywood actor Yul Edochie has stated that God is preparing him for the presidential seat.
For the past two weeks, Yul Edochie has continued to receive backlashes over his new marriage to his colleague, Judy Austin.
Many Nigerians berated him for cheating on his wife of over 17 years, calling him unprintable names.
However, in a post shared on his Instagram page, Yul Edochie said people all over the world have insulted him but don’t know the reason for his decision.
Yul Edochie said he has remained calm amidst the insults and attacks from people, which is the quality of a leader.
According to the father of five, God is putting him through all the recent challenges for the purpose of the presidential seat.
Yul Edochie promised not to react in anger or attack anyone but would remain focused on the task of building the country, Nigeria.
He said: “GOD IS PREPARING ME FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL SEAT OF OUR COUNTRY NIGERIA. In the last couple of days, I have been insulted by people all over the world who do not know the reasons for my decision”.
“I have been attacked by people who do not understand that every action taken has a root cause, people who do not live with me and my family therefore they will not know what inspired my action”.
“Have I insulted any of the people insulting me? No. Have I attacked any of them? No. I have remained calm. That’s the quality of a leader!!! God is putting me through all of this to prepare me for the Presidential seat of Nigeria”.
“As President I will make good decisions that may not favour certain people, I will provoke the corrupt ones, they will insult me, they will spread negative news about me”.
“And in the face of it all I will stand firm and unshakeable, I will never react in anger nor attack anyone unjustly. I will remain focused on the task of rebuilding our country”.
“Dear Nigerians, I am that leader we have all been yearning for!!! Stand with me and together we will be victorious, come 2023. It is possible. Be a part of this historic movement”.
