Actress Kemi Lala Akindoju has again called Desmond Elliot and other Lagos lawmakers following their submission at the controversial plenary which held few days ago.
The actress who noted that she has watched the complete video of the proceedings at the house, alleged that none of the lawmakers pretended to be on the side of the people who voted them in.
Akindoju added that a large percentage of the people who burnt police stations, looted and robbed are not on social media. Recounting how she was defending him, Kemi Lala Akindoju stated that Desmond Elliot apologized only because of the same ”social media they all want to regulate.”
Hon @DesmondOElliot sir, I have watched the complete video of the proceedings at the house. The most painful thing is none of you pretended to be on the side of the people that voted you into office. Y’all observed a moment of silence for the policemen that were killed.
What of The citizens that were killed all over the country? What of the peaceful protesters that were hoses down, tear gassed and shot at? What of the families still looking for their loved ones?
What of the palliatives that were hoarded?? What of bad leadership, corruption, zero accountability and more from most of the leaders voted in. A large percentage of the people who burnt police stations, looted and robbed are not even on social media.
YOU know this, YOU know how much young people have made sense out of everything Nigeria has FAILED to provide for them because of social media. But ALL OF YOU chose to turn away from the real issues. NOT ONE PERSON SPOKE TRUTH TO POWER. It is all good. We will not forget and we will do the work to reach everyone within and beyond social media. We will not forget.
I was even defending you and the spread of fake news a few days ago. Alas….!!! You have apologised, only because of the same social media you all want to regulate. The apology is good for damage control, but we really know the position of the Lagos state house of assembly. We move!
