Nollywood actress Efe Irele has argued in favor of Desmond Elliott, a senior colleague who is seeking re-election to the Lagos State House of Assembly representing Surulere.
Efe explained why she supports him and why she believes in him on her Instagram page.
She supports him because of his good deeds both as an individual and as a politician, not because she is close friends with him.
She said she had observed the way he had supported and encouraged other young Lagosians, including her, in the professions.
He provides free shuttle buses for pupils in Surulere, Efe Irele added.
The several award-winning actress stated that she is aware of 15 of the 1,000 individuals for whom he provided free health care and insurance.
“I believe in @desmondelliot not because I know him but because I have seen what he has done as an individual and as a lawmaker. I have seen how he encouraged and supported young Lagosians (including me) in the creative industry.
I have seen him provide free shuttle buses for students in Surulere. I personally know up to 15 out of the 1,000 people he provided free health care and insurance for.
Forget PR and social media management, Desmond Elliot is a good representative and I will be supporting and voting for him on Saturday.
I am with you my big brother and friend”.
