Desmond Elliot Apologizes To Nigerian Youths For Addressing Them As Children

by Anita Ogona
1. I have read your honest feedback& suggestions& I sincerely apologize for addressing the youth as “Children”
2. I did not mean to be insensitive with this, it was borne out of the magnitude of destruction & looting of businesses I witnessed when I went on a tour of my constituency
3. I saw women crying and my constituent members distraught as a result of the damages inflicted on their source of livelihood. I was moved by this while giving my submission on the floor of the House.
4. I allowed my emotions get the better of me and for this I apologize to everyone my earlier statements may have hurt.
Please, understand that even the best of us make mistakes. This is why, moving forward, I ask that we all try to engage constructively on the issues that affect all of us. I promise to do the same.
5. The pain that I feel for my constituents, the calls for assistance that I continue to get, and the need to mitigate against further destruction and violence will continue to drive my engagements and my work.
6. I thank you all for expressing your views, and in the future, I promise to be more conscious and aware.
Together, we will build a better Nigeria.
