He recently had his say via his social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, he doesn’t support people justifying rendering help to such men when they should be allowed to suffer for choosing to have kids in poverty.
Reno added that if such men suffer in their poor situation, they’d know better than to have kids they can’t cater for.
His words, ”Stop justifying giving help to a poor man because he has a wife and many kids. Let him suffer! Such a man needs to suffer, so that other people see him suffer and learn not to have kids they can’t cater for. Or we will have MORE of such in society, if you help them.”
“If you keep helping men for the sole reason that they are poor and have many kids, their mentality will be: born as you like, God will use people to help you train them. Your ‘kindness’ feeds that mentality, and creates a population explosion leading to insecurity!”
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.
