Popular Nollywood actor cum politician, Desmond Elliot has emerged as the winner of Surulere Constituency 1 for the Lagos State House of Assembly.
In the election conducted on March 18, 2023, Desmond polled a total of 17,837 votes to defeat his closest rivals Adebayo Bode of the Labour Party and Thompson Sulaimon Abolaji of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who polled 7,822 and 1,042 votes respectively.
It would be recalled that many reports claimed ‘The Johnsons’ star, Olumide Oworu would be battling with Elliot on the platform of Labour Party for the Surulere Constituency 1 in the just concluded election.
This media had earlier debunked the claims that Oworu is the Labour Party candidate for the constituency and this has further been confirmed in the results released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the election.
Meanwhile, following his victory in the election, actor turned politician has been seen in a viral video thanking and rejoicing with his supporters as they celebrated his win.
Women and men in the gathering could be heard chanting in Yourba that ‘they voted and they won’.
Full of smiles, Elliot high-fived some of his people as he went around.
