As soon as everything headed south with the Lekki toll gate protest, different developments and narratives have sprung up.
One of such was Lagos lawmaker and Nollywood star, Desmond Elliot, who was alleged to be pushing for a bill to censor social media speech and also blamed the Lekki shooting on social media influencers and celebrities. Though he has since come out to debunk the allegations.
A lot of Nigerians blatantly refused to accept Desmond Elliot’s explanations. One of such is popular musician Davido. Davido was of the opinion that with the narrative the lawmaker came up with, young people like him could still fail Nigerians if elected into office as president.
Davido’s statement was a reply to a young man who said Elliot was proof that a young person could be the president and still fail Nigerians.
The fan had tweeted:
“Desmond Elliot is a proof that a young person could be the President of this country and still fail us.”
Davido in response said;
“This tweet underrated.”
