Yul Edochie has made a brave move by calling on President Muhammadu Buhari not to run for re-election come 2019.
The actor and one-time governorship aspirant in Anambra state made this known while releasing a short video. In the video, Yul Edochie makes a passionate plea to the president to allow a younger person to take up the challenges currently facing the country.
"I hear you want to run for the second time in office I decided to do this video, please sir don't bother. I don't think Nigeria, Nigerians can endure four or more years of whats going on right now. Believe its really terrible, the hardship is too much," Yul said.

He went to praise Buhari as a good man but said he is worried at where the president missed it as his inaugural speech where he thought Mr President sounded like he really wanted to change things.
Yul Edochi's video might have been influenced by the letter written to President Buhari by former President Olusegun Obasanjo who also thinks Buhari shouldn't run for elections again.
We all can remember that Yul Edochie ran for the governorship elections at the recently held elections in Anambra state which he ended up not winning.
