The Actor contested the 2017 gubernatorial election in Anambra state on the platform of the Democratic Peoples Congress (DPC) where he polled a paltry 145 votes. Edochie blamed his poor performance then on lack of funds. He defected to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) shortly after the election and was appointed the Senior Special Adviser to governor Willie Obiano on Creative and Entertainment Media. He later resigned and joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the build up to the 2019 general election.
