Cousin Desmond should have used the same energy to fight for us. Now he’s collecting money, we’re “children”. ????You can see it’s not about age. You can be 22 years old and wicked. “Celebrities yen yen”…they didn’t vote for celebs, they voted for you sir.

The Vilification of the Nigerian Youth – Ep.3. The Nigerian youth are so rotten, they’re cursing politicians online.?Let’s not focus on why they’re angry, but on how rude they are. ?
Like Bobrisky said ‘insort never killed anybody’. Fix up & do your job Uncle Desmond. #EndSARS

You can be educated yet not enlightened. Majority of those we vote into office are obviously not the latter. Get your PVC out. Stop staying home during elections.
We must remove people who do not believe in the democratic process. #EndSARS #EndPoliceBrutalityInNigeria

Honestly I’m more than disappointed in Desmond Elliot. I’m so shocked. Anyway, we have been praying that God should expose the real state of mind of our leaders. Now we know how he really processes things. I pray the people he looks forward to representing in 2023 remember today
