After  declaring his intention to run for a seat in the House of Representatives in Lagos State come 2015, Desmond Elliot  has revealed that he goes thorough some tribal discrimination because some people still don?t know he is from Lagos state and a matter of fact his name is Olusola. He said;

?I am from Lagos state. My father is from Olowogbowo in Lagos Island but my mother is from Delta state. I refer to myself as being a Pan-African. People don?t believe I am a Lagosian because I seldom act in Yoruba movies. And I didn?t include the Shola in my name. Then because my surname is also English, many couldn?t differentiate which made people confused of where exactly I am from. I am very detribalised. People of my constituency know my story and know where I come from. I have always used Shola in my primary school days. I went to Air Force Primary School in Plateau and later attended St John?s College, both in Jos. I proceeded to Lagos State University where I studied Economics and graduated in 2003?
