Desmond Elliot Wins Lagos Assembly Seat
Desmond Elliot Wins Lagos Assembly Seat

After the main elections a fortnight ago that saw the victory of General Mohammed Buhari to become President-elect of Nigeria, the Assembly and gubernatorial elections also took place over the weekend.

Several Nigerian celebrities had tried their hands at getting into politics, but most of them fell by the wayside, some defeated as early as at the primary level.

Elliot is the anomaly, having sailed through; and he has now won the main election to become the representative of the people of Surulele constituency.

He stood on the ticket of the incoming All Progressive Congress, and defeated the incumbent, the PDP’s Bayo Smith.

So the famous actor is now an MP. Maybe one day he might become the Ronald Reagan of Nigeria.

Gossip Mama is one of the dumbest writers you will ever meet. What she lacks for in brains she makes for in.....As a female with some lil sense in her mind, she wants to give it out to the celebs lacking it. If you dont find her glued to the Tv, check her out by the computer bashing some celebrity with words.. I am not a journalist nor do I aspire to be one. I am a blogger who saw the potential of this site and joined the bloggers. And yes, I am biased. I only report on artists/celebrities that I like or find interesting.....
