He recently revealed this on Instagram, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, even with an 8 to 5 job, an employee should run a business by the side, else it is a waste of life.
He added that Nigerians should learn to make their education count by making or selling something, else they will have to spend their lives just existing in an office prison.
His words, “The greatest waste of education is sitting in an office from 8 to 5 because of salary. Make your education count. Start a business even if you have a job. Make something or sell something. But don’t spend your life just existing in an office prison.”
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.
