Pete Edochie Had Only 4 Pairs Of Trousers While Raising Us �

Movie star Yul Edochie has talked about his humble beginnings while growing up, recalling a time when his father, veteran actor Pete Edochie, had only 4 pairs of trousers.

While celebrating his dad in an Instagram post he shared on Friday, Yul Edochie revealed that at that time, his father rarely bought new things for himself as all he cared about was taking care of his children.

According to Yul, Pete Edochie was a civil servant before he started his movie career. There wasn't much he had then but he never took anything that didn't belong to him.

Yul said, "At a time while raising us his six children, this great man had only 4 pairs of trousers. Black, brown, blue, and grey. 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. Thank you Dad. Thank you Chief Pete Edochie."
