Lagos youths set to deal with Desmond Elliot in upcoming state elections
Just days back, Kemi Filani reported that Lagos youths in Surulere had vowed to come en masse to vote out Desmond Elliot, during the upcoming state elections from his political post as a lawmaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Surulere Constituency.
The youths are upset that since Desmond Elliot was sworn into office on 11 April 2015, he hasn’t produced any positive outcome, especially in Surulere. To make matters worse, he turned his back on the youths during the END Sars protest in 2020, by pushing for a bill to regulate and control speech on social media at the Lagos State house of assembly.
Now ready to deal with him, the youths had thrown their weight behind Labour Party’s candidate and actor, Olumide Oworu who is set to contend with his senior colleague, Desmond Elliott to represent Surulere Constituency at Lagos House of Assembly. Read more here.
