The African society is one that pushed the belief that children are gifts from God and that God would provide for them. In some cultures, it is believed that a child will bring what they would ‘eat’ from heaven.
Well, it goes without saying that this school of thought might have caused more harm than good seeing as there are so many destitute children roaming on the streets begging because their parents are unable to take care of them.
Surprisingly, it appears that couples who can barely provide for themselves are the ones who have a large number of kids. Well, Nigerian writer and social critic, Reno Omokri, has taken to his Twitter page to speak on the issue.
Reno said that it is the height of irresponsibility for someone to have children first before looking for what to take care of them with.
Tweeting further, the writer said that our parents might have done such in the past but it is still wrong. Omokri then advised that one should first look for the money then have the children.
He wrote: “It is the height of irresponsibility to have children and then look for the money to cater for them. You have the process backwards. Even if that‘s what your parents did with you, it is still wrong. First look for the money, then have the children!”

Just recently, Legit.ng reported on how Reno Omokri encouraged single men to be stingy with their funds till they get married.
The author in a post shared on his official Twitter page noted that single men should look out for women who are more vested in sharing their hearts as opposed to those that are more attracted to their pockets.
Pressing further with his advice, Omokri said that until marriage comes into the picture, men should be stingy with money and should instead focus on being generous with affection.
