June 10, (THEWILL) – Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has stated that Nigeria’s politics is beyond what people see or think.
According to him, it is only when you are in the system that one can get to understand so many things.
He revealed that politicians don’t just choose to give money or share money. They do so because people demand for it. If they don’t heed to their demand, no single person will listen to them.
“To understand Nigeria’s politics well, buy form and run for office. Win or lose, your eye go clear. You’ll stop ranting and start looking for facts.
“Politicians don’t share money because they want to, they share money because people demand for money. Without it, only few will listen to you.
“Politics is not done with sentiment, if you do, you will likely fail and keep failing. Politics is done with facts. That’s why my brother, Banky W, left his former party and joined PDP.

“And building structure for a party is not a one man thing. It takes a lot. So, he simply moved. That doesn’t make him a bad person, that’s politics.
“I wanted to run for president with APGA, after much consultation and meetings. We sat and we did our evaluation. We put sentiments aside and embraced facts. Our party is good, but does not have the capacity at the moment to win a presidential seat. So, I didn’t move
