Former Presidential spokesperson, Reno Omokri has also taken a swipe at Desmond Elliot over his comment on the negative impact of social media following the violence that erupted in Lagos.
Reno Omokri who reacted to the video which has now been made public, alleged that the actor turned politician was acting for his political godfathers to see his loyalty.
He also called on all those following Desmond Elliot on Instagram, to unfollow him.
“Desmond Elliott was acting for his political godfathers to see his loyalty. He is ambitious. He does not believe what he said. He believed he was writing a promotion exam. And he felt that the person that would grade his paper is Bola Tinubu. But Nigeria has changed. Power has shifted to the people. Even Bola Tinubu himself can’t recover from the effects of the last two weeks.
The man @DesmondElliot has 1.5 million followers on Instagram. If in 1 hour’s time, he still has 1.5 million followers, then I will know and accept that everything that he said about Nigeria’s youth is true, because only a fool follows a person that has nothing but disdain for them. Nigeria’s youth must show that government must be afraid of them and one way to do this is by showing that irresponsible speech and action has consequences!”
