I Didn’t Go Into Politics Because I Had No Money To Eat – Desmond Elliot


Popular Nollywood actor now politician, Desmond Elliot narrates how life has being, being a politician and a lawmaker.

In an exclusive interview with NET, Elliot said: “I really beg to be different when it comes to politics.”

“I didn’t go in as a poor man; I didn’t go in because I don’t have money to eat, that’s why I never changed my twitter or Instagram handle. I do everything myself, nothing changed about me. I hate when people over bloat themselves.”

“For me service is what it’s supposed to be, that’s why from the beginning of my campaign, I never wanted any political godfather, no one is telling me I put you there, then you must do this for me. I’m eternally grateful to my party for seeing me worthy to be in that position.”

“I don’t have an entourage, I just have myself, my PA and my driver and most times I do the driving myself. It’s a call to service because coming from a popular stand point I’m not seeking for popularity, the aim to leave a legacy of success and real change,” he ended.

Elliot represents the Surulere constituency 1 of Lagos and won under the platform of the APC.
