Nigeria adviser, Reno Omkri has stated in a new tweet that that anyone who gives funds to somebody with better phones is ‘enabling their false lifestyle’.
According to him, a mobile phone is a communication device and not a status symbol.
In his word;
“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 said.
He added that one of the things that keep poor people poor and in debt is the habit of upgrading their phones.
“One of the most USELESS habits that keeps POOR people POOR and in DEBT is the habit of UPGRADING your perfectly good PHONE just because APPLE, SAMSUNGMOBILE or TECNOMOBILE have introduced a new one. Do you see RICH people being that STUPID?” he asked.
