Nollywood Actor, producer, and Director; Desmond Elliot has landed in a big pot of hot soup and the soup is still boiling.
Nigerians are furious with the Lawmaker following his recent take on social media regulation in Nigeria. While speaking at the National Assembly, Elliot warned that Nigeria may not exist in the next five years if young Nigerians continue to use social media as a tool of abuse. The lawmaker who is representing Surulere Local Government said Nigerian celebrities and influencers should join hands to stop social media violence.
He spoke against the lootings by young people during the #EndSARS protest, insisting that Nigerian youth have gone overboard with the freedom they have on social media. Elliot called on the Speaker of the House of Representative and suggested that something must be done about regulating social media in Nigeria.
Even celebrities have also taken to their SM pages to criticize Nollywood actor turned politician “Desmond Elliot” for allegedly pushing for social media regulation.
Recall that a few days ago, Desmond Elliot was called out on Twitter over calling for an anti-social media bill. The actor turned politician however denied the allegations.
Well, a video that captured the moment the lawmaker representing Surulere constituency in Lagos, Desmond Elliot called for social media regulation has been making the rounds online.
Celebrities didn’t take it funny as they took to their SM pages to blast him.
