Popular Nollywood entertainer, Yul Edochie has lauded his dad, Pete Edochie as he describes his youth encounters during his childhood days.
Yul Edochie took to his Instagram page in a long write-up revealing that his dad was a government employee and he had just four sets of pants in all his years making known the colors of the trousers.
He uncovered that the veteran entertainer scarcely purchases things for himself as he was more worried about dealing with his kids and giving them the best training to become extraordinary grown-ups in future.
Yul Edochie took to his Instagram page and shared a picture of his beloved father Pete Edochie with caption;
”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
