Yul Edochie has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to provide an economic relief package for Nigerians to help cushion the effects of coronavirus.
President Buhari had shutdown three states in the country over the increase of coronavirus cases.
In a series of tweets shared via his Twitter page on Sunday, March 29, 2020, the actor pleaded with the president to come to the help of Nigerians.
“Dear President @MBuhari Pls provide an economic relief package for Nigerians, even if it’s 50k each, it will go a long way. People are hungry, locked down with no money, begging left, right & center. With a situation like this, it’ll be difficult to keep people at home,” he tweeted.
Dear President @MBuhari
Pls provide an economic relief package for Nigerians, even if it's 50k each, it will go a long way.
People are hungry, locked down with no money, begging left, right & centre.
With the situation like this, it'll be difficult to keep people at home.

Edochie’s tweets are coming barely 24 hours after the President had addressed the nation in a broadcast.
Yul was recently in the news when he enthused that it’s not a big deal for a man to kneel to propose to a woman.
The actor expressed his opinion on the controversial subject of kneeling for women barely a month after his father, Pete Edochie said it is totally wrong for a man to kneel when proposing to a woman.
But his son, Yul Edochie in an interview with Pulse said kneeling for a woman is not that serious, even though he believes his father’s view on the matter was right to a large extent.
He said, “To a large extent, the man is right. You know, it’s not our culture. It is foreign for people to kneel. But it is really no big deal. It is not that serious. Whether you kneel down to propose or lie down to propose, it doesn’t change anything. A woman who is going to leave you would leave you. The woman who doesn’t respect you would not respect you and the one who loves you and respects you will be with you whether you kneel or you lie or you fly”.
Asked if he knelt for his wife when he proposed to her he said, “I didn’t kneel because… well I didn’t have to. My wife didn’t ask me to kneel for me to propose. We got married many years ago in 2004”.
