Edochie, in an interview with Chude Jideonwo, the media personality, said he doesn’t see the need to do so.
The veteran film star, who was speaking about Yul Edochie’s case, said his own wife already bore him five sons.
Edochie clarified that he doesn’t condemn polygamy because people have their reasons for practising it. He added that he has been married for 53 years and has never been accused of domestic violence.
“For me, I mean I have a wife who has given me five sons. What am I going to look for a second wife for? No, it’s not necessary,” he said.
“I will not condemn polygamy, no, because people have their reasons for what they do, right? I have lived with this woman for the past 53 years.
Nobody has ever come in here to say ‘Oh please Pete stop beating her, you will kill her’.
“No, why? I never saw my father beat my mother so I cannot say I learned from my father how to beat mama.”
Edochie stated that any man who is violent toward a woman does not deserve to be called a man.
“I love women a great deal and I respect them. If I see any young man beating up a woman, oh my God. You know, I just think you don’t qualify to be a man,” the actor added.

DAILY POST recalls that Bazoum has been held hostage following the military takeover of the Niger Republic since July 26.President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Chairman of ECOWAS, had described the coup as unacceptable, giving the junta a deadline to restore democratic rule.
Mumuni, in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Sunday through his Media Aide, Rasheed Abubakar, advised Tinubu that war is not the answer.
He added that Tinubu should not be surprised if other Francophone nations in the association later pitch their tents with Niger if war were to break out.
