In his efforts towards helping people in his constituency cushion the effect of the 14days lockdown ordered by the Federal Government, Filmmaker and Chairman, House Committee on Environment, Lagos State Assembly Desmond Elliot has in collaboration with his colleagues in the film industry distributed free relief materials to the people.
The distribution exercise which took the form of a sensitization of masses was tagged “Coronavirus (COVID-19) Public Advisory’ with the hashtag; ‘LagosAgainstCoronaVirus’.
Nollywood royalties who joined the walk included Chico Ejiro, Segun Arinze, Zack Orji, Paul Obazele.
Others are Angela Philip, Torino and Obi Osotule.
Enlightening materials such as fliers were distributed during the awareness campaign.
However, some critics of the politician have once again backlashed him for allegedly executing mushroom projects in his constituency. They had alleged that the honorable had only given his people buckets of water and hand Sanitizers.
Howbeit, Veteran Filmmaker, Chico Ejiro who also was collaborator in the project has risen in the defense of his colleague. According to him, detractors of the honorable are being misled, because in addition to the widely publicized bucket water and Sanitizers, he also distributed food stuffs to his people.
“I stand with Desmond Olusola Elliot. I want to commend his work and what he has done in his constituency surulere by providing food items like rice, oil, Indomie and also other items during this pandemic. Why is it only the hand washing bucket and sanitizers that he provided that people are criticizing. He is doing more than his other colleagues he should be encouraged and commended instead of torn down. Please Desmond keep up with your good work.”
