Nigerians Blasts Desmond Elliot Comparison With Ugandan Bobi Wine

Twitter has rejected the comparison between Filmmaker turned politician Desmond Elliot and Ugandan politician Bobi Wine.

A Twitter user @VictorIsrael_ had compared Mr Wine to Desmond on Friday.

He said, “Truth is Nigerians wish they could have their own young and Vibrant Bobi Wine but the last time they gave it a thought, it resulted in Desmond Elliot.”

Things quickly took a turn as his tweet did not sit with so many people.

Desmond deactivated his Twitter account and took a break from Instagram and Facebook after the storm that greeted his statement that there may be no Nigeria in five years if social media is not regulated.

The Surulere rep argued that social media was used to spread fake news, disinformation and violence, including an attack on the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, during the protest.

“The curses, the abuses from children, and I asked myself ‘Is this Nigeria? What is going on? Children cursing?’ People have the effrontery to enter an Oba’s palace, hold the staff of office, culture is gone. Mr. Speaker in the next five years there will be no Nigeria if we don’t start now,” he said.
