Desmond Elliot Wins Lagos Assembly Seat

Nollywood actor and politician Desmond Elliot won his bid to represent the people of the Surulere constituency at the Lagos state house of assembly.

Gatekeepers News reports that Elliot, who contested on the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC), won his reelection bid after securing 17,837 votes to defeat Adebayo Bode of the Labour Party (LP) who polled 7,822 votes.

Thompson Sulaimon Abolaji of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) followed after Bode with 1,045 votes.

In the wake of his victory, Elliot has been spotted in a viral video celebrating with his fans in Surulere.

Elliot also appreciated Femi Gbajabiamila, the speaker of the house of representatives, for his support towards a successful outing in the state assembly election in Surulere.

In September 2014, the movie star declared his intention to run for Lagos state house of assembly under the APC.

He contested and won the Surulere constituency in the April 11, 2015 elections.

Elliot’s nomination by APC for a second term came unopposed as well as the third.

In the past few years, the politician has been on the receiving end of social media criticism.
