I Sincerely Apologise For Addressing The Youths As ‘children’ – Desmond Elliot
Desmond Elliot has apologized for addressing the youths as ‘Children’ while making his submission during plenary at the Lagos state House of Assembly last week.
Nigerians on social media have been dragging him since for his comment.
In a statement he released on his Twitter handle today, the actor apologized for his choice of words during the deliberation. According to him, he did not mean to be insensitive.
Read his statement below:-
I saw women crying and my constituent members distraught as a result of the damages inflicted on their source of livelihood. I was moved by this while giving my submission on the floor of the House.
I allowed my emotions to get the better of me and for this, I apologize to everyone my earlier statements may have hurt.
Please, understand that even the best of us make mistakes.
This is why, moving forward, I ask that we all try to engage constructively on the issues that affect all of us. I promise to do the same.
The pain that I feel for my constituents, the calls for assistance that I continue to get, and the need to mitigate against further destruction and violence will continue to drive my engagements and my work.
I thank you all for expressing your views, and in the future, I promise to be more conscious and aware. Together, we will build a better Nigeria. End.”
