The governorship candidate of the Democratic People’s Congress (DCP), Yul Edochie, on Tuesday at Umunnachi, Dunukofia Local Government Area of Anambra State promised to put smile on the faces of the people of the state if he wins the November 18, governorship election.

Edochie, who is a notable Nollywood actor, made the statement in Awka during the presentation of his running mate, Emeka Okonkwo, saying that he will give people joy by replicating the excitement people get watching his numerous film clips.

His words: “I have made a lot of people happy through my films; if elected, I will leave the movie industry for governance to make the people more happier.

“For many years, we have been told that youths are the future leaders. I am here to serve as that youthful leader, who is ready to bring about positive change for the people.”

While recognising the role played by the older people, who according to him had done well, the actor noted that the youths have come on stage to ensure the needed change for the purpose of growth and development of the state.

Furthermore he said: “There is hardship and hunger in the state and so, our first job will be to ensure food for all and we shall have a committee set up to tackle major challenges in various communities.

“Our government if elected, promises to engage more youths in meaningful employment in various sectors, especially in the entertainment industry through the siting of a Nollywood village in the state.”

Edochie however, expressed concern over the marginalisation of youths and the need for them to be actively involved in politics.

In his speech, Edochie’s running mate, Emeka Okonkwo, solicited for the votes of the electorate, saying that they were aware of the  problems existing promising  that they we will tackle them if they win.
