Morgan Goodroad:

"So na now you remember to use our tax money on us.....our eyes Don open. We know that game."

Olaide Omogunwa:

"People believed so much in you ,but you proved to us that you are nothing different from the rest of the politicians, welcome back to nollywood Mr Desmond."

Oluwafemi Ogunjimi:

"Desmond, you're a gunner. It's too late to fool the people again and again. By the 19th of March, the people would have succeeded in retiring you back to your first love- movies. Unfortunately, I doubt you can still get major lover boy roles again now that you're growing older and your tummy getting bigger. Quick advice: Save whatever is left from the funds you've realized during your political career, else, "OYO" is your case."


"They will not install that transformer. If he loses the election he will come back and carry it, if he wins they will carry by telling the people they want to bring a bigger one."
