Nollywood actor and presidential aspirant, Yul Edochie has taken to social media to eulogise his father, Pete Edochie, narrating how he trained his six children with only four pairs of trousers.
According to Yul, the veteran actor never cared about himself as he was very focused on his children. He also added how his parent, particularly his father taught him how to be a good citizen.
Sharing a photo of his father, he wrote;
”At a time, while raising us his six children, this great man had only 4 pairs of trousers.
Black, brown, blue and grey. But he never cared. He hardly bought new things for himself. All he cared about was taking care of his family and giving his children the best. Then he was a civil servant before the movies came. There wasn’t much money but he would never take anything that doesn’t belong to him. Then if we come back from school with anyone’s pen or book, your nyash go catch fire for his hand. Amongst many other things, my parents taught us to be content with whatever we have, work hard, believe in God and be upright citizens. All he kept on saying was this ‘if I give my children the best training and the best education they will survive anywhere and they’ll never lack and I will be a fulfilled father’. Now that I’m older, with each passing day I appreciate you and mum so much more. Thank you. Thank you Dad. Thank you Chief Pete Edochie @peteedochieThank You.”
