Music star Davido has expressed his disappointment over the statement made by the lawmaker representing Surulere 1 at the Lagos State House of Assembly, Desmond Elliot on how Nigerians make use of social media.
Recall that the actor cum politician made a contribution during the plenary session lamenting on how Nigerian youths made use of the social media to promote hate speech noting that Nigeria may disintegrate if the social media in not regulated.
The Fem crooner agrees that the honourable is proof that a young person could be president and as well fail Nigerians.
In reaction to the video, Davido said Elliot has destroyed all the precious childhood memories he gave his fans in movies.
@Davido, “Desmond Elliot just destroyed all the precious childhood memories he gave us in movies.”
Nigerians reacted to the speech and accused the Lagos lawmaker of supporting an anti-social media bill.
Below are some reactions of social media users:
@sa_vvy_, “So Desmond Idiot thinks in the next five years there’ll be no Nigeria, not because of our murderous leaders or the high rate of poverty, but because of social media. that man has lost the plot.
@chukkusmiles_”If Desmond Elliot had the fear of God and respected those who lost their lives at the #LekkiMassacre we won’t be here. Such a shame.”
@Drolufunmilayo, “People died.
But Desmond is more angry about online “curses” against their killers.
“People were massacred but Desmond is more angry about the Oba Palace. People were murdered but Desmond is more angry about social media. Dear young Nigerian, I hope you now know your enemies.”
@Chlemchi, “How old is Desmond Elliot to call young people children? This is the illusion of political office in Nigeria. It makes one think they are infallible.”
@alexloboloba, “Surulere residents need to apologize to Lagosians for voting for a representative like Desmond Idiot.”
@BhadmudAkeem, “Desmond Elliot has only been a politician for 6 years, yet he has been consumed totally by the devil. This boy is just 46 years of age ooo, yet he’s referring to us as children.”
