Former President’s spokesman Reno Omokri, has said people using the latest iPhone should not be given money by anyone.
In a post made on his verified Instagram page, Omokri said that people should endeavour to live within their means or expand it by getting jobs or establishing businesses to afford their wants.
He wrote: “Never give money to anyone with a latest iPhone, no matter how desperately they beg. Such a person misuses money. They are not in need. They are in want. Big difference!
“They have money, but prefer to spend it not on their needs, but on their wants. Some of them will tell you that the latest iPhone was a gift.
“Wait a minute. What type of family or friend sees you in need, and rather than give you something to address that need, they give you the latest iPhone? It is like going to a doctor to complain of malnutrition and the doctor gives you the most expensive perfume to spray.
“Live within your means. And if you don’t like your means, then expand it via a job or business, and not via begging.”
