The actor who has ventured into politics and is currently running for the Governor of Enugu state believes he is going to win the election by the grace of God.

Speaking in an interview with The Nation, here’s what he said:

“I have no fears. The slogan is when Jesus says Yes, no man can say no. I am going to win by the grace of God if everything is done the way it is supposed to be and I know it will. You may just be talking to the next governor of Enugu state. I have no fear.”

On leaving acting for politics, he had this to say:

“Thank God acting is a job. One Politician in Enugu state said one of his conditions for supporting me is that I must continue acting because he is my fan and the beauty of acting is that he does not have any retirement age. So I am an actor. I cannot say i will never leave because ‘Never’ belongs to God. So it depends on the will of God but just know I am an actor for life.”
