Tribalism is Killing Us- Yul Edochie Says
Veteran actor Yul Edochie has taken social media to propagate oneness as he speaks against tribalism which he has noted to be the bane retarding the growth of Nigerians.
The actor whose distinctive baritone voice has given him a unique identity in Nollywood ultimately boasted about his accomplishments in Lagos and the kindness of the Yoruba people as he reacted to the outrage on social media over bigotry and tribalism engulfing Nigeria.
He took to his verified IG page and published thus;
I’ve lived in Lagos since 2011. Built my house in Lagos. Not once have I experienced any form of hate or rejection from the Yorubas. Anytime Yoruba boys see me on the street, they gather to greet me, and it’s all love always.
And this talk flying around that Lagos is a no man’s land is wrong. Lagos is a Yoruba state in Yoruba land Imagine someone saying that Anambra is a no man’s land. That’s crap.”
Anambra is an Igbo Land. You can’t come into someone’s land and tell the person it’s now a no man’s land. Na you dey find trouble.
Nobody can deny the fact that the Igbos have contributed immensely to the development of Lagos. Other tribes have contributed in their ways too.
And the Yorubas have been largely accommodating as well. It shouldn’t take away the fact that Lagos is a Yoruba land. We no dey drag ownership. Let’s kill tribalism before it kills us. YUL EDOCHIE.
