Desmond Elliot In Trouble
Reactions from Twitter users, who compared Bobi Wine To Lagos Lawmaker, Desmond Elliot
A popular Twitter influencer, @DrOlufunmilayo said “Let’s not compare Bobi Wine with Desmond Elliot though. It’s a huge disrespect to Bobi Wine. If we are being very honest. One wants to rebuild his country, The other one wants to fill his country with mobile toilets. One is a patriot, the other is an idiot.
@datmastermind80 “Desmond Elliot and Bobi Wine are two different people entirely though. One came to challenge an oppressive system, the other joined politics as a retirement plan from his acting career.
@mazi_manulu said “Nigerians wish they could have their own young and Vibrant Bobi Wine but all we keep seeing are Desmond Elliot, Adamu Garba, and Yahaya Bello. Very bad omen
@Ozo_Njenje said “Bobi Wine joined politics refused to join the cycle of corrupt old fool killing Uganda this made him the voice and face of opposition in Uganda. Desmond Elliot joined politics and went to national TV to brag about being a product of godfatherism. Shame, the difference is clear.
@the_coolest_gal “It is a huge disrespect to Bobi Wine for him to be compared to Desmond Elliot. Bobi wine has served his country to the very best making him a patriot while Desmond Elliot just wants to commission toilets and behave no less than an idiot.
