Politics hasn't changed me – Desmond Elliot


Nollywood act, Desmond Elliot, has declared that he has no political godfather and nothing has changed about him since he became a politician.

The actor cum politician who was recently elected as a member of the Lagos State of House of Representatives for Surulere Constituency, says he begs to be exceptional when it comes to politics.
In a recent chat with some journalists, the multi-talented actor said: “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, he added.”
