If the saying,
“man by nature is a political animal” is correct, then it is the duty of every
citizen according to his best capacities to give validity to his convictions in
matters that concern body polity of his nation otherwise one will end up paying
the penalties of being governed by the inferiors.

This must have
informed the recent incursions of thoroughbred professionals who’re now taking
a shot into the political foray since they believe it is not just a matter of the
constitutional rights but the need for experts in all fields of human endeavour
to make hay while the sun shines.

One of such young,
vibrant and dynamic personalities is Desmond Elliot, the multiple award winning
movie actor, producer and director of international repute who has signified interest
to contribute his quota to the development of his immediate constituency.

The handsome
actor recently joined politics and has declared his interest to contest for an
elective post, he’s in fact eyeing the State Assembly under the platform of the
Lagos ruling party, All Progressives Congress-APC in the forthcoming 2015

Born Desmond
Olushola Elliot, the Economics graduate of the Lagos State University hails
from Olowogbowo area of Lagos Island and it is a common knowledge that, his
late father, Engr. Emmanuel Bamidele Elliot was a popular Civil Engineer who worked
with the then Unipetrol for over 30 years before he established his family
roots in Gbaja zone (Ward F3) of Surulere Constituency 1 after his retirement,
and they have since lived in Surulere where Desmond spent his formative years
till date.

Over the years,
the actor has always felt the need to impact on people’s lives by bringing
positive change and this is why he established the Desmond Elliot Foundation, a
charitable non-government and non-profit making organisation which has worked
in partnership with an international organization-WaterAid in various
capacities to provide clean and safe water in some communities as well as being
a member of the Sickle Cell Foundation where he helps to seek for funds to
facilitate the work of the foundation in educating the society on Sickle Cell

Desmond is
banking on his long-list of connections which he has enjoyed graciously as a
popular artiste both in the corporate and private world, some of which he has
had brand endorsements with to capitalize on the relationships through various
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Give-Back projects to bring
developments to his immediate community, Surulere Constituency 1 thereby not
relying so much on the government. 

According to
him, ‘the most important priority of any society and its leaders is to
eradicate human sufferings, and I believe no average Nigerian should suffer
because we’re blessed with enough that should make us comfortable if right
leaders are given a chance to manage the resources, and it’s high time we
considered the need to empower skilled professionals of repute to take charge
of the administration of affairs in our country, the youths should wake up from
slumber and stand up to their responsibilities, this is the time for the change
we’ve all been clamouring for” he charged.

Amongst his
scope of developments which he plans to tackle with his high interactive
networks are youths empowerment/employment, sports development initiative,
widows’ aid programme, health care for the elderly, health care for nursing
mothers and children, enablement of town hall meetings and above all open
door/feedback policy which will afford each and everyone in the constituency to
have one-on-one with him to discuss various individual challenges.
