“In the next five years, there’ll be no Nigeria if we don’t act now,” he said.
Hon Elliot hinged his argument on the level of moral decay and on how children curse politicians on social media without any iota of respect, saying ‘culture has gone.’
He further pleaded with Nigerian celebrities, social media influencers and motivational speakers to “tune down on the hate narrative.
