'I always thought our leaders were our problem until I joined politics' - Yul Edochie


Nigerian actor/politician Yul Edochie has shared his perspective towards the discovery that the problem pertaining to the country was not the leaders.

Yul Edochie who was the Democratic Peoples Congress’ candidate to run for the governor of Anambra State shared his thoughts on Twitter.

According to him, before he went fully into politics, he thought the problems was from the leaders, until he realized that the citizens play a major role when it comes to the nation’s problems.



He was of the view that people will readily support and vote for a rich criminal who is running for the same position as a poor but honest candidate.
He wrote: “I always thought our problem was our leaders till I joined politics and realized the people are also a big part of the problem.
“If you run for office and you don’t have money to share, even your village people will leave you and support a well known kidnapper who is sharing money”
The father of four also condemned Nigerians who migrate to other countries in search of greener pastures.
He said that most of these people move to countries where they are treated like third class citizens when they could stay in Nigeria and help fix the country.
“Yes our leaders have failed us for so long but running out of the country is not the best option. Who go fix am?
“Then we are treated as 3rd class citizens abroad. We need all hands on deck, all voices.
“The fewer the opposition, the easier it is for the oppressor to carry on”
