I’m 'NOT' Being Groomed to Succeed Ambode-Desmond Elliot

Nollywood hunk turned politician, Desmond ‘Olusola’ Elliot has debunked claims from certain quarters that the godfather of Lagos Politics, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is preparing him to take over from the incumbent Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode come 2023.

The multiple awards winning actor, who still find time to feature in a few flicks said he has never had such discussions with anybody let alone reach such agreement.

In his words “For the umpteenth time I am not being primed to take over from Mr. Ambode. I don’t know where that story is coming from, both that is certainly not true. I like what I am doing; it’s a great opportunity for me not just to serve, but to learn.

When asked if he is going to take it beyond Lagos in future, the lawmaker simply said “let’s keep our fingers crossed.”
