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 demanding for a recall of the lawmaker, trending the #RecallDesmondElliot.
Watch the video below:
See some of the reactions on Twitter below:
Honestly I’m more than disappointed in Desmond Elliot. I’m so shocked. Anyway, we have been praying that God should expose the real state of mind of our leaders. Now we know how he really processes things. I pray the people he looks forward to representing in 2023 remember today

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.

For his case, we don't have to wait till 2023, we can use him as an example for others to learn, by starting the process of his recall. Those in his constituency, Surulere, should do this… #RecallDesmondElliot pic.twitter.com/kEaibIY5od

And this is the same Desmond Elliot we learnt went to write ielts exam sometime ago so he can relocate to Canada with his family. He can't join hands with evil men to sow evil seed in Nigeria to later run away. He'll reap the fruits of evil as well. #RecallDesmondElliot #EndSARS
