Barely 48 hours after veteran Nollywood actor, Desmond Ellliot denied supporting the social media regulation bill at the Lagos state house of assembly, video of the law maker speaking against Nigerian youths on their use of social media, has surfaced on the internet.
In the video, the 46 year old was heard condemning Nigerian youths, citing for example how the government was ridiculed and insulted over the recent chaos that happened in the country.
According to Desmond, Nigerian youths use the social media for negative things more than the positive. He added that the government needs to look into it and make sure something is done.
