Soccer star, Kanu Nwankwo, (with microphone) campaigns for actor, Desmond Olushola Elliot, second right
Kanu Nwankwo, one of the most respected footballers in Africa and United Nations Ambassador, recently gave a big boost to the political aspiration of Desmond Olushola Elliot (DOE) at a political forum recently.
Kanu told the gathering, which took place in Surulere, Lagos, that he believed Desmond Elliot would make the constituents and the people of Surulere proud when elected into the Lagos House of Assembly, just as he too had made Nigeria and Nigerians very proud as a good representative of the country abroad. He made the declaration at a forum organized for Desmond Elliot to meet a group of Widows in Surulere.
While addressing the crowd, Elliot spoke extensively on the several community based projects he has been sponsoring over the years, some of which include; sponsoring tertiary education of over twenty (20) students at the National Open University, Talent Sponsorship for the Entertainment Industry, working in partnership with some financial institutions to give loans to micro businesses and medical support. He also spoke on the many social plans his party, the All Progressives Congress, has for Nigerian women.
Prior to signifying interest in politics, Elliot had for several years established a humanitarian foundation that has been meeting the needs of poor communities in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Uganda and some other African communities. These are the past and present good works done that have positioned him as the choice candidate that will truly address the needs of the people, especially those in his constituency when elected their representative in 2015.
Desmond Olushola Elliot is contesting for the post of Representative at the Lagos State House of Assembly (LAHA) on the platform of the APC, representing Surulere Constituency 1. He has received immense support from his immediate Nollywood community, his numerous fans and major APC party caucuses within the local government since he flagged off his campaign.
