Uche Edochie, one of actor Yul Edochie’s brothers, took to social media to ask an interesting question.
In a video shared on his Instagram page this morning, Uche asked how society should deal with someone who makes an irreversible mistake.
Yul has been in the news since April this year when he announced he fathered a child with actress Judy Moghalu and took her as his second wife. His decision was widely condemned by many Nigerians who saw him as a role model.
Uche on Sunday, September 18, shared a post on Instagram, where he pointed out that society does not value honesty and the truth only creates enemies when told.
”What could be more admirable between honesty and deceit? Most people will tell you it’s honesty and will even quote a part of scripture that says, “The truth will set you free.”
But none of this is true. Society does not value honesty and the truth will only make you enemies. It does not free you. Not on this planet. If we all walked around saying what we think, we’d either end up dead or in jail. We are encouraged to tell the truth but reviled when we do. Isn’t that something?
So we lie to our wives, husbands, parents, children and all of society. We lie to protect them because we know they can’t handle the truth. This is why we lie. The most controversial thing you can do today isn’t kill, cheat or steal. The company makes this daily mass. The most controversial thing you can do is tell the truth. A lie is like a bottle of soda. It’s good but it’s not good for us. Truth, on the other hand, is like quinine. The taste is horrible but healthy and healing. That’s why we have ads of your coca colas and pepsi plastered all over the world but not quinine. A lie just tastes better.
And that is why, my friends, we celebrate cheaters and attack truth tellers. We consider it more respectable for a man to marry one woman and quietly cheat on her with multiple women than for him to marry two or more of those women, making his feelings for them official and respectable. It seems to me that the problems we face in life are not because we are imperfect humans. We struggle as a society simply because we cannot handle the truth.

Some Nigerians criticized him, saying he vindicated the actions of his brother, Yul.
In response to his criticism, he shared another video this morning stating that everyone makes mistakes.
“When you make an irreversible mistake in your life and everyone else makes that mistake, how do you think society should treat you? Do you think society should condemn you for the rest of your life or do you manage to remedy this situation by trying to improve things? “, he asked.
