The last couple of months have been a very bad one for Desmond Elliot as he gets criticized on a daily basis, mostly by Nigerian youths. The funny aspect is that he is frequently blamed even for things that have nothing to do with him.
I know that he has offended a lot of Nigerian youths by referring to them as children and trying to regulate social media, but I want us all to see him from another perspective.
A lot of people are just talking about what he did wrong. What about the good things he has done? Below is the reason why I think Desmond Elliot is not a bad leader as some Nigerians think:
The Nigerian politician constructed a bridge for a neighbourhood in his constituency. Even though the Shitta-Oke Odo link bridge in Surulere wasn't big enough, it was worth it. At least he did something for the people he's representing. Besides, you don't know the other little achievements he has been able to accomplish since he became a politician.
On this note, I urge Nigerian youths and everyone else who have a grievance against Desmond Elliot should just let sleeping dogs lie. Let's all learn to focus on the good works of people and not try to badmouth them. Thank you.
