Desmond Elliot Apologizes For Calling Nigerian Youths Children
After being bashed and slammed by the youths of Nigeria, actor turned politician Desmond Elliot has rendered an unqualified apology to the youths.
According to him, he allowed his emotions to get the best part of him, the reason why he referred to the youths of Nigeria as children in his address.
Adding that he got really angry while looking at the destruction caused by hoodlums in his constituency but ignored the fact that he talked about regulating social media.
Netizens reacting to his apology said it’s too late for that as now they know who he represents in the house as they quiz why he didn’t talk about the social media regulation.
