After news broke out on Twitter that Desmond Elliot, was pushing a social media bill to regulate free speech on the internet, the Nollywood actor cum politician refuted the allegation, stating that it was untrue.
However, a video now making the rounds which shows Desmond Elliott’s statement at the Lagos State House Of Assembly plenary sitting seems to suggest otherwise, and it’s causing quite the reaction as some even clamor for a recall of the lawmaker, trending the “#RecallDesmondElliot.”
Watch the video below:

The irony of not seeing the failure of “parents”, traditional rulers, religious leaders, political leaders, those in government etc as the reason the Nigerian youth are revolting. https://t.co/hvdx9AngXY

Surulere people, can we vote out the actor, Desmond Elliot in the next elections? He’s been an utter failure. I understand he doesn’t even believe in Nigeria & has moved his family to Canada! Why should such a person continue representing us in Surulere? Yes, we can @OmoKakafiala

Since Desmond Elliot has resumed office, he hasn’t been acting in our best interest and should be REMOVED.
