Opportunist Politician, Desmond Elliot Gifts Constituency Toilet
Since Elliot inaugurated the toilet on Thursday, he has come under attack by Nigerian youths on social media, who argued that he hasn’t impacted positively on his constituency in almost four years of his term in office.
On twitter, Offor Cyril posted that, “We wanted ‘Not too Young to Run bill’ signed. We wanted more youths in governance. APC gave us Yahaya Bello and Desmond Elliot, the toilet commissioner. We have the power to throw the APC and Desmond Elliot into that toilet with our PVCs. Vote wisely.”
@Ilynem also tweeted: “People like Desmond Elliot is the big part of the reason we doubt these new generational not too young to run politicians. They are mostly younger versions of the old ones. The man is smiling and commissioning toilets. Tufia!”
While inaugurating the project, Elliot said, “Commissioning (sic) of a public bio-fuel toilet in Love Garden field, Surulere, Lagos which was facilitated by Hon Elliot. It was donated by Ladi Lawanson, the Commissioner for Transportation.
“This isn’t just a building neither is it just a toilet but one that converts waste to manure so nothing is wasted as we keep the environment clean. Sincere thanks and gratitude goes to Ladi Lawanson for making the bio-fuel toilet a reality. Thanks to the Australian Government for sponsoring the project.”
