Popular Nollywood actor and film director, Desmond Elliot says he didn’t go into politics hungry, which is why nothing can change his person.
The actor, turned politician, was elected as a member of the Lagos State House of Representatives for Surulere constituency under the All People’s Congress.
In an an exclusive chat with NET, Desmond hinted:
“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.”
