He recently had his say via his social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the owners of Gucci, Armani and Louis Vuitton are already billionaires, so investing in them doesn’t make any sense.
Reno added that people should learn to spend their money on assets that will put money in their pockets.
His words, ”The owners of Gucci, Armani and Louis Vuitton are already billionaires. You are not a billionaire. You are not a millionaire. You are not even worth $100,000. They don’t need your money. You need your money more than them. Invest in your future, not their future! In fact, nobody on Earth needs a new car. Absolutely nobody. What you need is a reliable car. Except it is an antique car, buying a new car is the worst investment you can make. The moment you drive it out of the dealership, 15% of its value is gone. Spend your money on assets that put money in your pocket!”
Bemigho Reno Omokri (born 1974) is an author and lawyer. Omokri was the host of Transformation with Reno Omokri, a Christian teaching TV show broadcast (for one season) on San Francisco’s KTLN and Detroit’s Impact Network. He is the founder of a multimedia project, Build Up Nigeria, and has produced a series of short films in the U.S.
He is the pastor of the Mind of Christ Christian Center in California and Abuja. He is also known for using social media to project the Gospel. Omokri continues to write articles for major newspapers (mainly political OpEd and Christian material).
On August 17, 2017, the Department of State Security attempted to arrest him at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja but failed. Three days after the failed arrest attempt, the ruling party in Nigeria, the All Progressive Congress, named Omokri, along with former President Goodluck Jonathan and Governors Nyesom Wike and Willie Obiano as some of those showing “hatred, narrow-mindedness and meanness” to President Muhammadu Buhari.
He was one of three spokesmen to the former President, and is credited with pioneering the use of social media for political purposes in Nigeria.
