Governor Godswill Akpabio is One of My Motivator……Desmond Elliot Reveals
Politics is seen as game of the strong minds, but the orientation is gradually changing as it is now seen as a game of the brightest and freshest with good aspirations. Nigeria is blessed with many political parties with two major strong parties in the race in the race of providing good leaders.
One of those aspiring to create a fresh change in the political terrain is Nollywood actor, Desmond Elliot who is vying for the political position at the Lagos State House of Assembly.
The actor, speaking with Vanguard Newspaper, explained the reason for his choice of the All Progressive Congress over other parties is because the party is a party that scramble and believe in change.
“Why APC? It's the party of change, it's the party to be in, and it's the party to realize every dream. Its manifesto has said we are giving more than a million jobs to youths; every unemployed youth is entitled to at least N5, 000 a month."
There's housing and I'm talking genuine housing, low-cost housing for people, the expansion of Lagos State in terms of housing is one of the things we're looking at. There's so much, not just promises but things you know they can do,” he said.
“This is a party that means change; all I'm asking for is people should get into this boat and seize this opportunity to be in this party because it is indeed the party of change. It is diversified in terms of the people that are members of the party, you couldn't ask for anything better.”
To the shock of many, the actor, has been able to prove that though politics is a game, he still believes in unity and love when he was asked those he admires most in the political cycle, he mentioned the present Governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola, Bola Tinubu and Akwa Iboma state Governor, Godswill Akpabio of PDP.
“I admire Raji Fashola for his administrative effort; I admire Tinubu for his strong will and resilience, and I also admire the innovative style of Godswill Akpabio and his energetic mind in nation-building. Those are the three people that motivate me politically.”
