Yul Edochie, a Nollywood actor, has praised his father, Pete, a senior colleague, for the discipline he instilled in his children when they were younger.
Yul wrote on Instagram, beside a photo of his father, that his father’s strictness made him and his siblings strong.
As children, the actor recalled an incident in which his father’s presence pushed them to use drugs.
Yul wrote, “Those days as kids when we had malaria, my mum could spend so long petting and begging you to take your Nivaquine drugs which were very bitter then.
“When that style no works, she’ll now send someone to go call Popsi.
“Omo, once my Dad comes into the room, standing at the door staring at you with his mean face and his belt in hand, bros you go rush your drugs instantly and be happy after taking them.
“And once he’s around, you must take your drugs with water, no matter how bitter it is,. No drink for you, just water.
“Popsi was strict to a fault. Him no get time to pet you oo. No-nonsense man. Those days we dey fear am. Now I appreciate him so much.
“He made us tough. Ebubedike 1 of Africa @peteedochie. I love this man. My man, forever.” (sic)
Yul has already announced his desire to run for President in the 2023 general elections, and his father has rallied behind him.
