7 Nigerian celebrities who wants to become governors of their respective states (see posters)

Nigerian celebrities who wants to become governors: 2019 may be two years away, but politicians have already started strategizing on how they could clinch the seats up for election. This is normal, but what is a bit surprising to many is how celebrities have started showing interest in running for elective office. The Nigerian senate and House of Representatives has even passed the Not Too Young To Run bill giving youths the opportunity to run for political offices. Perhaps this is what has given celebrities the drive to delve into politics.


We curated a list of celebrities who have started making moves to fully enter politics. Check them out below:

1. Yul Edochie

Actor and son of Nollywood veteran Pete Edochie, Yul was the first celebrity to declare his intention to run for Governor in the forthcoming elections in Anambra state. Writing on why he wanted to become the next governor, Yul says “we need young, vibrant, decisive Leaders with good hearts, Leaders who understand the urgent need to fix the problems of the masses. Leaders who will put tribalism and favouritism aside and work for the people.”He hasn’t announced the party on whose platform he intends to run for the governor of Anambra state in November 2017.
