Desmond Elliot apologises to youths, says the hatred is too much (Video)
Vondigest reports that Nollywood actor turned politician, Desmond Elliot, who represents Surulere Constituency 1 in the Lagos State House of Assembly and seeking another term, was on TVC Your View where he apologised to the youths and spoke about his comments on the End SARS issue.
When asked by Morayo if that would continue to be in play, especially since it’s political period, Desmond Elliot, while speaking, said forgiveness is divine and doesn’t think going back to bring out those sensitive moments will do anything, as at the end of the day, he has apologised and still apologising to those who misconstrued what he said as he did so due to emotion.
Speaking on how that affected him, the Honourable said “but in the end, it still didn’t take away the fact that the hatred is too much. We are all built on love, changing things by love”.
According to him, he has been in politics for 8 years and still stands on the fact that love conquers all even though when he goes out on the streets, people still curse at him, but he’s not afraid or ashamed because they don’t understand the stress.
The governorship and state assembly elections across the states in Nigeria that was slated to hold this Saturday has been shifted to March 18th and, with this, gives more time for candidates eyeing a position to reach out more to the people and bridge gap between them and the electorate.
