“I wanted to motivate them(Children) and keep them away from peer pressure” – Pete Edochie
In a recent interview with The Nollywood Reporter; the veteran actor talks about family. How he’s been married for 45years and how he motivated his kids to graduate from the university. Read Below;
“I wanted to motivate them and keep them away from peer pressure. Parents must be able to motivate their children and set target for them. The minimum target for each of them was to graduate from higher institution; their reward upon graduation is a car. And where I come from, it is important to keep one’s word; I bought the car for each of them. Yul who is over 30 is the last born and he got his too.” I married early and have remained married since then” he said. He dismissed the idea of a second wife as a titled chief, “what am I looking for a second wife for? I married a woman who gave me six children, what could I possibly be looking for in another woman that I didn’t get from this woman? There is no reason for it” he answered to a question on why he didn’t pick a second wife.
' The minimum target for each of them was to graduate from higher institution; their reward upon graduation is a car' Hmmmmm…… on the other hand I tell why some kids graduate by book or crook. saw Yul in recent time he wasn't looking like he gud boy!
