Oct. 29, 2020

The former Nollywood actor and the representative of Surulere constituency of Lagos house of assembly, Desmond Elliot speaking at Lagos house of assembly today spoke about the negative influence of social media and social influencers.
In his words;
"Mr speaker, we need to address certain things. The Nigerian youth, social media, social influencers, all of these are making the narrative that we are seeing today. Except we are joking with ourselves. Social media, yes all good, has its negative impact.
"Let me first thank you for condemning the wantom killings and carnage that happened at Lekki. When I went through the comment, I could not believe it. The curses, the abuses from children and I asked myself, is it Nigeria? What is going on? Children cursing, people have effrontery to enter into Oba's palace and hold the staff of office, culture is gone!
"Mr speaker, if in next 5 years, there will be no Nigeria if we don't start now. The youth is not only those who did the peaceful protest, those who has looted, those who has destroyed lives, they are youth as well.
"Mr speaker, pregnant women, when it will muzzle and went away. When are we going to change these narrative? I put it to all these celebrities out there, all the motivational speakers. This is the only country we have. The wealthy will go. When anything happens, what is our common say? We die here.
"Please celebrities, please social media influencers, you have a means constitutionally to change government."
The Nigerian singer and songwriter, Davido has reacted to this. In his reaction, he said Desmond Elliot just destroyed all the precious childhood memories he gave us in movies...
