Former aide to Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has advised fans and followers to desist from giving money to people who possess the latest iPhones.
He explained that such people were not worthy of help as they prioritized their wants over their needs which was detrimental in the long run.
He said that even though some of them claimed the expensive phones were gifts, it still didn’t add up as people in need shouldn’t be gifted luxury items instead of necessities.
He wrote on IG:
Never give money to anyone with a latest iPhone, no matter how desperately they beg. Such a person misuses money. They are not in need. They are in want. Big difference! They have money, but prefer to spend it not on their needs, but on their wants. Some of them will tell you that the latest iPhone was a gift. Wait a minute. What type of family or friend sees you in need, and rather than give you something to address that need, they give you the latest iPhone? It is like going to a doctor to complain of malnutrition and the doctor gives you the most expensive perfume to spray. Live within your means. And if you don’t like your means, then expand it via a job or business, and not via begging
