Desmond Elliot

Nigerian actor and Lagos House of Rep member, Desmond Elliot believes the society needs to come together and ensure widows live well.

He said this in a press conference after being made a widows’ liberty ambassador by the Felix King Foundation.

According to him, widows need to have their rights protected and be accorded their privileges in life.


‘I choose to join hands with the Felix King Foundation in pushing the cause of widows in our society,’ Elliot said.

‘The widows in our society deserve to live, we need to join hands to stop the maltreatment of these women, protect their rights and accord them their privileges.

‘Together as a community we can change practices that are obnoxious,’ he said.
