Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has set tongues wagging after he mimicked the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obu, in a yet-to-be-released movie.
The actor shared the trailer of the movie “Peter Obi” on his Instagram page on Thursday, which has since generated mixed reactions from social media users.
Yul Edochie played the role of Obi in the movie as he altered his deep voice to mimic that of the presidential candidate. Different scenes in the newly released movie also captured Edochie dressing just like the former Anambra governor and making references to some of his real-life situations.

While some social media users hailed the actor for carrying out the role perfectly, others lambasted him for mocking the former Anambra state governor.
See some reactions to the video below:
That Yul Edochie can't make heaven. What is really cracking me up about that Peter Obi movie is the way man is straining his vocal cords to have that strained voice that Peter Obi has. Na werey the guy be.😂

Good Morning guys, i stumbled on this Nollywood's depiction of His Excellency Peter Obi.
I have mixed feeling about Yul Edochie's Voice and his wife's character but overall, i think the writer wanted to pass a very important message.
– Stop wastage.

Yul Edochie will not make heaven, truly.
On PO’s side of acting is quite commendable, but on PO’s wife of portray; is quite misleading and doesn’t send the right message of our incoming First Lady.

You all shouldn't take that yul Edochie video about peter obi to heart . It's not like that is a false peter obi character representation. It's just for the laughs 😂

This is not who Peter Obi is pls, let's be guided. Yul Edochie is working for Soludo, and Soludo is working for Atiku Abubakar. Peter Obi is not stingy. He is only prudent.

I think Yul Edochie is mentally deranged. What nonsense movie did he release and call it Peter Obi, and on that movie acting like mumu.

Lol. A poor attempt at playing Peter Obi. The voice is nauseating.
Yul Edochie remains a low budget AM Epic actor. While his mates are breaking into Nollywood 2.0 and Hollywood even, smashing box office, he is contented with poor scripted movies and getting side chicks pregnant

Yul Edochie wants to spoil the name his father spent years building, he rode into Nollywood with his bald head and everyone liked him because we thought Pete Edochie had thought him morals. What he is looking for on this internet might start from his father before we get to him

Yul Edochie had good intentions but wrong timing. We don’t need this now
