Former presidential aide Reno Omokri has disclosed that people who beg him for money live above their means while he maintains a simple lifestyle.
The ex-aide to former president Goodluck Jonathan took to Twitter to make the disclosure, saying those that approach him for money have human hair, nice dark glasses and "powerful clothes".
Omokri noted that he cut his own hair and does not have a single designer shade, adding that he dresses simply.
He wondered why he should live within his means and pay other people to live above theirs.
In his words: "True story: People beg me for money, yet they have human hair, nice dark glasses, and powerful clothes. I cut my own hair. I don’t have a single designer shade. I dress simply. Why should I live within my means, and pay for you to live above yours?"
As expected, Nigerians took to the comment section of the post to give their thoughts on the matter.
Below are some of the comments:
Recall that on Wednesday, September 2, Omokri gave some words of wisdom to his followers on Twitter as he usually does.
In a series of tweet, the ex-presidential aide likened money to fire, saying fire is not good or bad in itself.
According to the Omokri, fire is a light in the hand of a good man and the same fire will burn things down in the hand of a bad man.
He went on to advise his followers to not easily feel sorry for some poor people, adding that they once had money but used it to burn bridges.
