Veteran Actor, Pete Edochie has declared that none of his  five children would join politics in Nigeria due to the corrupt nature  of the nation’s politics.

Pete Edochie disclosed this in a recent interview with the Tribune Newspaper.
The actor said, “Can I ever be a politician? God forbid! Will any of my children become a  politician? Let God forbid it now that I am still alive. I will discourage him. I remember an occasion that a politician was on the  television and I was sitting with another politician, and the one on TV  was screaming, ‘If I get the people who stole this money, I will not  only sack them; I will prosecute them,’ and the politician by my side  said ‘Nonsense! He took the money; I was there.’”
Berating the political structure, the renowned actor known for his wicked roles in movies said, “Look at people crossing from one party to the other. It just shows that our  democracy has no meaning. The people you owe your obligation to are  those who elected you, who make up your constituency. Before you make  any decision or defect, consult them. It is rather unfortunate. Before  we gravitate to 2015, by the time they want to pick a presidential  candidate, that is where the problem will come from. Let’s watch.”
Lending his voice on the recent controversial statement made by Pastor Chris Okotie, Pete said, “He is entitled to his opinion. He has the right to say whatever he likes  and he is using that right. Constitutionally, he is entitled to it.  Stupidity is what we all have in common as human beings, but some people insist that improving it is their entitlement. So, you expect Pete  Edochie and other Catholics to be angry? No, I won’t. When people  condemn T. B. Joshua and say he is using devilish powers, I tell them, ‘Go and use devilish powers and do what he is doing too.’ I don’t  believe in running people down because you can’t reach their gifts and  depriving others of their hard-earned credit.”

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
