As Twitter roasts ace actor cum politician Desmond Elliot for his ‘wayward’ comment about Nigerian youth which triggered the EndSars protest, Davido who happens to be one of the frontrunners of the rife protest has thrown in his own two cents about the trending matter.
The lawmaker representing Surulere constituency in a submission on the plenary session held by the Lagos state House of Assembly blasted Nigerian youth for being lazy which is why they found time for this EndSars protest which has continued for weeks unabated. He also gave a fair share of the blame to celebrities who started the ‘cold war.’
According to him, the youth have a constitutional means to change government and it is called the ‘PVC’.
In his words, “Mr. Speaker, we need to address certain things. The Nigerian Youth, The Social Media, The Social Influencers, All of these are making the narrative that we are seeing today, except we are joking with ourselves. Social media is good but it has Negative impacts.
“Let me thank you for condemning the killings and carnage that happened at Lekki. When i went through the comments i could not believe it Mr. Speaker, the curses, the abuses from children and i ask myself, is this Nigeria ? What is going on?
“Children cursing, people having the effrontery to enter an Oba’s palace, hold the staff of office ? Culture is gone. Mr. Speaker, in the next 5 years, there will be no Nigeria if we don’t act now.
“The youth is not only those who do the peaceful protest, those who have looted and destroyed lives are youths as well.”
“Go to the elections, if you are tired come and enter government. People are dying. The narrative must change.” He added.
While responding, Davido said that Desmond Elliot has destroyed all the precious childhood memories he gave the youths, in movies. He tweeted; Desmond Elliot just destroyed all the precious child hood memories he gave us in movies
