Elliot said he is still the same person people have known and nothing has changed about him.

He said he is out to make a difference in politics, and that he was never a hungry man before venturing into politics.

In an exclusive interview with NET, Elliot said: “I really beg to be different when it comes to politics.”

“I didn’t go in as a poor man; I didn’t go in because I don’t have money to eat, that’s why I never changed my twitter or Instagram handle. I do everything myself, nothing changed about me. I hate when people over bloat themselves.”

“For me service is what it’s supposed to be, that’s why from the beginning of my campaign, I never wanted any political godfather, no one is telling me I put you there, then you must do this for me. I’m eternally grateful to my party for seeing me worthy to be in that position.”

“I don’t have an entourage, I just have myself, my PA and my driver and most times I do the driving myself. It’s a call to service because coming from a popular stand point I’m not seeking for popularity, the aim to leave a legacy of success and real change,” he ended.

Desmond, who currently represents the Surulere constituency 1 at the Lagos House of Assembly, contested on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He defeated a candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bayo Smith at the election.
