A onetime aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has warned not to give money to somebody who uses better mobile phones.
Reno Omkri made this clear in a tweet he posted on Friday, saying a mobile phone is a communication device and not a status symbol.
Omokri continued that anyone who gives funds to somebody with better phones is ‘enabling their false lifestyle’.
“A phone is a COMMUNICATION gadget, not a STATUS symbol. NEVER give money to someone who uses a better phone than you. Doing so is not CHARITY. It is STUPIDITY. You are enabling their FALSE LIFESTYLE. CHARITY funds NECESSITIES, not LUXURIES,” he said.
The past presidential aide also stated that one of the things that keep poor people poor and in debt is the habit of upgrading their phones.
“One of the most USELESS habits that keeps POOR people POOR and in DEBT is the habit of UPGRADING your perfectly good PHONE just because APPLE, SAMSUNGMOBILE or TECNOMOBILE have introduced a new one. Do you see RICH people being that STUPID?” he asked.
