However, a new video surfaced showing him argue that social media is causing harm to our culture.
Nigerian did not take this very well and resulted in bashing him online.
In the viral video, Desmond said,
Mr Speaker, we need to address certain things ;
The Nigerian Youth, The Social Media, The Social Influencers, All of these are making the narrative that we are seeing today, except we are joking with ourselves.
Social media is good but it has Negative impacts.
Let me thank you for condemning the killings and carnage that happened at Lekki. When I went through the comments I could not believe it, Mr Speaker, the curses, the abuses from children and I ask myself, is this Nigeria? What is going on?
Children cursing, people having the effrontery to enter an Oba’s palace, hold the staff of office? Culture is gone. Mr Speaker, in the next 5 years, there will be no Nigeria if we don’t act now.
He also said that social media influencer shad a part to play in all these.
He pleaded with them to ‘tone down on the hate narrative’ because it was rubbing off on the rest of the youth.
Finally, the part of his speech that broke the camel’s back was when he said if the youth were tired, they should come and lead.
