Actress Georgina Onuoha has blasted her fellow colleague and Lagos lawmaker, Desmond Elliot over his now infamous speech at the Lagos State House of Assembly.Desmond Elliot Georgina Onuoha

Desmond Elliot used to be a famous actor and a people’s person before he went into politics. In a recent video that surfaced from the plenary sessions in the House of Assembly, Elliot gave a spirited speech that was obviously anti the people who voted for him in good faith.


The actor called for draconian laws to regulate social media. He also called the #EndSARS protesters “children” who were bold enough to insult their leaders following the Lekki Toll Gate shooting.

The speech earned him heavy criticisms from both his former colleagues and the general public. Georgina Onuoha is the latest Nollywood star to flay the Desmond Elliot over his speech.


“Power does corrupt indeed. What the f*ck are you talking about @desmondelliot ??? You are not making a damn sense Shola??? Are you mad?? Because you now eat from the table of corruption, you’ve all of a sudden lost your sense of belonging??” she wrote.


“I’ve always believed that power corrupts, but I held Hope high for you and could swear for your character as a man and as a person. Apparently, you are now at a place of convenience, you now think you have the audacity to talk down on the fingers that fed you and the people whose wings propelled you to where you are today??”


“F*ck you Desmond. Not too long ago at Lagos State University, people like me were giving you transport money to catch a ride back home. You’ve forgotten where you come from… omashey oo. Pele Politician., the youths are waiting for you come next election. Oniranu jatijati.

She queried him on why he didn’t put so much passion into calling for the end of police brutality.

“Desmond I expected this same level of passionate speech when the youths were being killed at Lekki tollgate? Where were was your outrage? I’ve not seen your speech condemning the Nigerian Army or your Governor who lied about it!!” she added.

Where is your passionate speech regarding police brutality against the Nigerian youth? Where is your passionate speech regarding the pains and sufferings of the Nigerian youth.. just yesterday you were a nobody that everybody believed would make a change by advocating for the youths and less privileged because we all come/came from nothing to become who we are today but you’ve forgotten that.”


The actress added she no longer has any respect for Elliot seeing that he’s now a different person. She also threw in how he’s a disgrace and a disappointment.


“I’ve truly lost every atom of respect and love I have for you. You are better than this Shola! What happened to you Shola Onyema Desmond Elliot? I’m waiting for your passionate regarding the untold hunger amongst Lagosians and the high unemployment amongst our youth? You feel differently now because you don’t know what it’s like again to go to bed hungry with zero hopes for tomorrow? Omashey oo.”


Where is your outrage addressing Mr Speaker in  your parliament?? Have you forgotten Desmond?? Don’t betray who you are and your conscience. Power is momentary .. don’t lose your soul. You truly disappoint me and all who loved and cared about you and what you represent. It’s truly a shame Desmond.”


Desmond has since apologised for his speech saying he was overtaken by emotions. This, however, hasn’t stopped the criticisms from pouring in. They’re also talks of a recallment by his constituents.
