Controversial Nollywood actor Yul Edochie has tackled Nigerian youths who are in the habit of mocking the health condition of All Progressive Congress Presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Taking to his Twitter handle in a tweet on Tuesday, August 9, the movie director, Yul Edochie wondered why Tinubu’s opposers to the presidential bid come 2023 would mockery and make jester of his health status and age.
This is coming after a video of the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu struggling with a shivering hand while making a speech, made waves on social media.
According to many youths, they found it non-believing for Tinubu to contest for the presidential big while battling his health condition, hence the mockery.
However, Yul Edochie, in support of Tinubu, stated that old age is a blessing and sickness can happen to anybody, stressing that some of those making a mockery of Tinubu may not be lucky to see old age.
He wrote, “Old age is a blessing. And sickness can happen to any one whether young or old. Making a mockery of Tinubu’s health or age is wrong.
“It’s ok if he’s not your candidate, but making jest of him cos of his age or health is absolutely wrong. You may not be lucky to see old age”.
