Desmond Elliot Apologizes To Nigerian Youths
A week ago, the actor-cum-politician tendered a public apology to all his compatriots for his comments about the youths during the #ENDSARS protests in October 2020.
He said he was not referring to everybody as children but to those who were attacking the Speaker of Lagos State House of Assembly, Mr. Musashiru Obasa on his tweeter handle.
The lawmaker who begged for forgiveness said the hatred he has received on the heels of the comment was ‘too much.
The actor had this to say, “what I can say is, I think forgiveness is divine. I mean, no one owns it all. Something can be your truth and to another person, it might not be. I don’t think going back to bring out those sensitive moments would do anything.”
