A member of the Lagos State House of Assembly and Nollywood actor, Hon. Desmond Elliot, has advised Nigerians to channel their passion and energy towards the election of credible leaders same way they did with the just concluded Big Brother Naija reality TV show.
Over 26 million votes were recorded from viewers for the final show, which saw Efe Michael Ejemba emerge winner of the N25 million naira prize money and KIA Sorrento SUV.
Elliot, who shared his thoughts on his Instagram page, desmondelliot said that the nation “would be a much better place if governed by our people of our choice” if they put the same energy used for the reality TV show.
The lawmaker who shared it on the posted photo of Efe with the caption, “just a few lessons I believe we as a nation, a people can learn from.
“We are all different in thoughts, actions and behavior, but unique in many way. Just as they tolerated one another we also should learn to do same.
“If we put in half as much interest and energy that we did in #bigbrothernaija2017, into those we elect into public offices, Naija would be a much better place being governed by our people of choice.
Nigerians are not as illiterate as we portray ourselves to be, it is obvious the masses vote for Efe.
“Many flew out of the country to witness the “coronation” of Efe in South Africa and knew exactly what they wanted and they got it.
“It pays to always be yourself at all times, never let them turn you to who you are not.”
Elliot who is also a OneCampaign Ambassador for the Girl-Child education, was present at the grand finale of #BBNAIJA where he was a co – presenter of the award.
