“OK before I sound like a broken record ,I must express my profound gratitude to my distinguished colleagues at the Lagos State House Of Assembly for these words..
[9:08am, 2/4/2016] Hon Braimoh Tunde: Most Distinguished Honourable Members, Let’s raise our voices in unison and wish our Celebrity friend and brother Honourable Desmond Olusola Elliot a resoundingly remarkable and happy birthday. As you will agree with me,Desmond has come a long way. He evolved through the thick and thin to arrive at this enviable height and pedestal where he is now. Not only is he one of the most celebrated and decorated Nollywood export; he is also a purposeful and successful politician. DOE, why wouldn’t rejoice and be glad? Just reminisce with nostalgia and reflect on ur thorny and tortuous path to glory and stardom. Which of those trials and tribulations would u forget? Is it the impudence and ignominy of Ramsey? Is it the battle to garner or corner lead roles? Which of them? But today, you are a success story, deservedly and meritoriously so. Your yesterday was was your EXPERIENCE. Your today is your EXPERIMENT and your tomorrow is your EXPECTATION; a great one at that. Verily verily I say unto you my handsome and winsome bosom brother, your yesterday was written in ink, your today is written in marble but your future shall be written in Gold! For and on behalf of the Rt Hon Speaker Mudasiru Ajayi Obasa,Leadership and Membership of the Distinguished 8th Lagos Assembly, I wish u a happy birthday and many happy returns.
