Former actor turned lawmaker, Desmond Elliot has been dragged on Twitter over a speech on the negative impact of social media and the call for its regulation
This is coming following the actor’s claim of having nothing to do with the social media bill regulation contrary to rumour supporting the claim.
However, a video that surfaced on the internet shows the moment the lawmaker representing the Surulere constituency in the Lagos State House of Assembly supported the social media bill, hence triggered an uproar across social media platforms.
How Nigerians reacted :
The stupid Desmond Elliot even has a baby outside marriage with some other lady & his wife is not even aware? Same idiot wants to regulate social media? Someone that cannot regulate his penis to be loyal. Amu anọ ofu ebe 1 of Surulere Constituency. Onye mgbu!

Please, who exactly was Desmond Elliot referring to as kids? We can take this disrespect from grandpas in power, not from some uninspiring actor in our age bracket.
