Actor cum politician Desmond Elliot is all over the news and for the first time, it is not for the right reasons.
Yesterday, he went over board when he was addressing the whole #EndSars issue and ended up labelling the youth children because social media allows them to take swipes at politicians and their parents.
That opened the floodgates of discoveries and back lashes.
All of a sudden, people were talking about how he cheated on his wife with Lydia Forson, who has a secret child with Wizkid’s ex-girlfriend’s sister with Moesha claiming by the side that she also slept with the man.
It has been one hell of ride since then.
After all of that, Desmond has apologized for what he said about them yesterday.
“1. 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
“2. 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.
“3. I allowed my emotions get the better of me and for this I apologize to everyone my earlier statements may have hurt.
“4. 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.“
He is yet to speak on all of the cheating allegations leveled at him.
