Nollywood actor turned politician, Desmond Elliot has got many talking after he donated transformers to his constituency, a few days before the 2023 gubernatorial elections.
Elliot who is running for a third term as a lawmaker for Lagos State House of Assembly, Surulere Constituency took to social media to reveal he commissioned the instalment of high-capacity transformers in Surulere.
His action is geared towards bringing reliable electricity to communities that have long needed it.
Nigerians have taken to several comment sections to slam Desmond Elliot for what is considered cheap propaganda to win another election in his constituency. Others noted that he acts as tho he is doing his community a favour.

Bonnevie wrote: “The fact that we let these wicked politicians get away with these stupidity and selfishness vexes me to my core. All these sudden silly show of concern cos they’re finally scared it might not be business as usual because of this 3rd force? Why all these and various explanations, interviews, visitations and trying so hard keeping up appearances if you certain you did your jobs before now? Even the one who confidently turned down a debate now everywhere with so many shalayes.”
