Famous Actor and Politician, Desmond Elliot has offered a public apology to all who were affected by his comments during the #EndSars brutality period which turned out to be one of the country’s (Nigeria) darkest moments

Desmond Elliot in a new interview stated “what I can say is, I think forgiveness is divine. I mean, no one owns it all. Something can be your truth and to another person, it might not be. I don’t think going back to bring out those sensitive moments would do anything.”

The lawmaker would continue by adding “I think at the end of the day, I apologised for, and I’m still apologising to those who must have misconstrued what I said. I said I was taken by emotions but in the end, it still didn’t take away from the fact that the hatred is too much. The polity, the hatred is too much. We are all built on love. We can change things by love”

Desmond Elliot would conclude by insisting he was not referring to all youths on social media as children insisting that those he saw verbally abusing the speaker were teenagers “Truly they were teenagers, when I clicked on those who were cursing at Mr Speaker. And that’s exactly what I said. But I’m sorry again. That’s what politics teaches you. You must learn. You must! You can never be prideful. I’m in politics now, for eight years and I still stand on the fact that love conquers all. I mean, I’ve gone out on the street and people still curse at me. But I’m not afraid, I’m not ashamed. Because they don’t understand the stress that you go through and I pick it from their point of view because someone just hoped that you could just help him or her. And at that point, you are stressed with so many things. So at the end of the day, it happened.”
