He took to his Twitter page to say; “We have lost everything we met on the land. Cocoa, palm oil, groundnuts, cotton, cashew and rubber have been forgotten and are better produced by nations who came to learn from us. We have lost our moral compass, our society is fractured, and our statehood is threatened.”
Commenting on the deplorable and deteriorating nature of the country, the Nollywood star said, “Our citizens are in all prisons around the world. Some of them prefer foreign prisons to coming back to Nigeria. Our passport is treated with disdain everywhere you present it.”
“Why should our government be this big with special advisers on cassava and beans affairs? Do we need 36 ministers? Why would our president spend close to a billion on food while close to eighty percent live on less than a dollar a day?” he quizzed.
Desmond Elliot further wondered, “Why should he budget a billion for generators and diesel when he is urging us to believe in his power sector reform? Why does our President need six private jets? Why should our politicians keep their salaries when Obama slashed his?
“Why should we continue to be wasteful when the handwriting on the wall says “danger”? Why should we believe the government when it says the subsidy gain will be properly reinvested. Bad leadership and corruption must stop,” he said. . . ” MyJoyOnline.com
