Desmond Elliot has apologized for addressing the youths as 'Children' while making his submission during plenary at the Lagos state House of Assembly last week.
In a viral video that captured the Surulere lawmaker's submission on the Lagos carnage, he addressed the youths as children and opined that social media was used to fuel the carnage.
Nigerians on social media have been dragging him since for his comment.
In a statement he released on his Twitter handle today, the actor apologized for his choice of words during the deliberation. According to him, he did not mean to be insensitive. Read his statement below
''I have read your honest feedback& suggestions& I sincerely apologize for addressing the youth as “Children” I did not mean to be insensitive with this, it was borne out of the magnitude of destruction&looting of businesses I witnessed when I went on a tour of my constituency
I saw women crying and my constituent members distraught as a result of the damages inflicted on their source of livelihood. I was moved by this while giving my submission on the floor of the House.
I allowed my emotions get the better of me and for this I apologize to everyone my earlier statements may have hurt.
Please, understand that even the best of us make mistakes. This is why, moving forward, I ask that we all try to engage constructively on the issues that affect all of us. I promise to do the same.

The pain that I feel for my constituents, the calls for assistance that I continue to get, and the need to mitigate against further destruction and violence will continue to drive my engagements and my work.

I thank you all for expressing your views, and in the future, I promise to be more conscious and aware. Together, we will build a better Nigeria. End.''

Desmond, stop deceiving yourself. You are not a smart individual. You are nothing short of a cheap criminal hiding under the umbrella of political scam, deceit, lies, inhumanity, idiotism, ungodliness, selfishness, and shamelessly corrupt. Supporting Bola Tinubu on national television by means of 'Godfatherism' that has basically destroyed the Nigerian political industry. One unexpected day, the almighty living God will visit you all in his wrath. Wicked souls. You all have special sits in hell because of what you have done to innocent suffering Nigerians.

No, this is crocodile tears, he gravitated to his normal politician and BAT loyalists protectionists mode and forgot he is supposed to be an advocate of the youths, let him enjoy the monies he is making from politics, and enjoy the price too when he is booed by youths, when nobody wants to watch his films and attempt to cancel him, when he goes out to campaign for nest election cus he can only buy votes but how many peoples votes can you buy? it is too late to apologies but not too late to repent
