The 51-year-old actor seeks to represent Ideato South LGA of Imo State under the Young Progressive Party (YPP).
Mr. Ike who made the announcement on his social media accounts has also shared pictures from his grassroot campaigns.
“Campaign up, YPP, youth and masses friendly party. Let’s go fellow masses, YPP is changing the grassroots narrative. Youths, it’s our time,” he wrote.
“Real leaders should step out to the centre stage. Let’s sample the stuff u are made of. Not merely sharing money with no content.”
