Former Nigerian presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has advised that no one should give money to people who use better phones noting that it would amount to ‘stupidity’.
Mr. Omokri stated this on Twitter, emphasizing that mobile phones are built as a communication gadget, and not as a status symbol.
“One of the most useless habits that keeps poor people poor and in debt is the habit of upgrading their perfectly good phone just because Apple, Samsung, Hauwei, or Tecno have introduced a new one. Do you see rich people behaving like that?
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 wrote.
