- The former presidential aide explained that he would rather a wealthy vanity as it is conducive to happiness
Nigerian author and former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, is back with his famous nuggets and this time, it is about money.
According to him, the phrase that talks about money's inability to buy happiness was created by rich people to keep poor people from threatening their wealth.
Omorki explained that both wealth and poverty were all vanities and it was simply a matter of picking one's vanity.
He stated that wealth was the vanity he chose as money is very conducive to happiness.
Bobrisky says as he shows off dollar bills says, 'If you want to be a runs girl, be an expensive one'
In his words:
"When a rich man dies and leaves his wealth some people say ‘vanity upon vanity’, as if wealth is a sin. It is not only wealth that is vanity. Poverty is also vanity. They are both vain because none of them can save you. But I prefer a wealth vanity. The phrase ‘money can’t buy happiness’ was invented by happy rich people to prevent the poor from threatening their wealth! Are you not happy when you get a bank alert? Was it poverty that made that possible? Money is very, very, very, conducive to happiness!"
