Don’t insult my father or Tinubu in my presence – Yul Edochie warns Nigerians

Award-winning Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has said that he will not tolerate people insulting President Bola Ahmed Tinubu or his father, Pete Edochie.

The controversial thespian who has been facing criticism since he took a second wife last year, issued a warning to those who insult Tinubu while having an interview on White Pearl Studios TV.

Yul had once described himself as an Asiwaju boy and noted that he believes in the president. He also shared a photo of himself wearing and wrote on IG; “ASIWAJU BOY. 100%. UNAPOLOGETICALLY. I LOVE TINUBU. @officialABAT I BELIEVE IN HIM. AND I’M PRAYING FOR HIM TO SUCCEED.”

But in the recent interview, he warned people not to drag his dad or the president.

“Only two people must not be dragged in my presence: my father and President Bola Tinubu”, the actor said.

Nigerian actor, Emeka Amakeze recently berated Yul Edochie for criticising Arise TV anchor, Rufai Oseni.

CorrectNG recalls that Yul had called out Oseni over his style of journalism while reacting to his interview with All Progressives Congress Chieftain, Jesutega Onokpasa.

The actor accused the journalist of being unprofessional and disrespectful, adding that he has no “moral right to talk where people with integrity are taking.”

Yul said; “Is this not the same Rufai Oseni that was caught driving against traffic driving on BRT lane in Lagos around last year or so? And when the officials stopped him instead of apologizing and accepting he is at fault, he said ‘do you know who I am? I’m going to call the Governor of Lagos State’

“Same Rufai Oseni, who was insulting people on national TV? All in the name of doing journalism, my friend sit down, you don’t have any moral right to talk where people with integrity are taking….”

Reacting to the viral video, Emeka Amakeze urged his fellow actor to learn when to shut up because he was apparently not making sense.

He wrote: “Yul should learn to know when to shut up and go boil an egg or do something else. What in the name of struggling to make sense is this?”
