"Covid-19"- Nollywood Actor & Lawmaker, Finally Defends His Decision To Distribute Buckets. (Photos)

After getting a Nationwide criticisms, over his 'Bucket' project, Nollywood actor and Lagos State Lawmaker, Desmond Elliot has finally taken to social to address the whole Brouhaha:


There is lots of negativity out there, nobody could even suggest what they think, I should have done. That program was done, at the same time, we distributed 2000 sanitizers, 100ml at that but there was no publicity, it was not posted. We also have food, bags of garri, Bags of rice, bags of noodles, soaps, we distributed all of these.


He Continued:

We created awareness, we sensitized people, and nothing was said about that, if you guys had read my post on social media, I said "Make Shift", meaning it was a test run, for us to see if it's going to work, to the world it was not working, to the people it was. In the bucket, there was hypo disinfectants inside and also, there was hand sanitizers beside them, I had people checking on them, to make sure there is water in them constantly and soap there as well. You have made bloggers sell negativity even in death ( like Covid-19), for you people asking me, why my face is on it? Am I supposed to put Nike or Adidas on them? Are we campaigning now? Am I supposed to put your face there? You are saying, I want to score points, if I wanted to do that, I would have put my face, on everything, including the bags of rice, Garri, indomie and all. I did what I feel it's right, because I am here and you are there, all you is criticise, especially those in diaspora, that Nothing in Nigeria is ever good for you people. If you don't like something, make a suggestion, let's build this country together. Besides criticisms, what value does social media add to Nigeria, nothing good ever goes viral, currently we just sent another 2000 sanitizers, and we are working on 500 more, and my face is still on it, you can send your face lemme put on it, is there anything bad in me putting my face on it?

He concluded with:

Not all Politicians, are bad people, I am here to serve my People, my state and my country, if you feel you can do better, come 2023, you can go and run for an election, post other things that I have done, not just one, let's support ourselves stop bringing People down. This is me baring my mind to you guys, please try and make this one trend too.
