Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, who ran for the November 18 governorship election in Anambra State on the platform of the Democratic Peoples’ Congress, DPC, says he has no regret vying for the election that saw Governor Willie Obiano got re-elected.
He however noted that the governor humiliated all other candidates including himself by winning in the 21 local government areas of Anambra State, a feat, he said, is unprecedented.
Edochie, who was speaking at Awka, during the inauguration of the newly elected Coordinator of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Zone B, Comrade Kenneth Okeke and other executive members, said he contested to give Nigerian youths a voice.
“Gov Willie Obiano dealt with all of us because I know that it is not easy for a candidate to win the 21 local government Areas in a state like Anambra, so, we congratulate him and now that the election is over, what remains is for us to support him and his government.
“We did not lose the election per se but I am fulfilled that we represented the voice of the youths in Anambra State. We won the election by getting to the end of the election without surrendering to anybody against all odds and pressure. I am calling on all of us to support the winner to ensure that the next four years will be better for the entire Anambra people.”
