Presidential aspirant and Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has gone down memory lane to recount how difficult it was for his father to raise them.
The actor took to his Instagram page to narrate the difficulty his father went through in order for his children to attain greater heights especially in their education.
According to Yul, his father, Pete Edochie had only four pairs of trouser and was never worries about himself as long as his children never suffered in their academic pursuit.
“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 him 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 Dad.
Thank you Chief Pete Edochie @peteedochie
