Actor and director-cum-politician Desmond Elliot recently marked 100 days in office as a Lagos state lawmaker. In his short time in active politics, the actor seems to have learnt a few things about the sector as he has, in a chat with NET, given out tips on what one needs to do to become a good politician.
Desmond said, “Firstly beware of sycophants, people that tell you you’ve done great, that’s one thing I’ve learnt over the years. Never feel you’ve done well because the truth is you haven’t unless the last Nigerian becomes self-sufficient.”
He also spoke about the things he’s been able to achieve so far. “…For me, what I’ve been able to do is more on education and youth. I’ve been able to help a lot of them get their GCE forms, paid for their extra moral classes, made sure there’s some form of mentorship.“
