Controversial Nigerian lawyer and author, Reno Omokri has waded into the Femi Otedola and his daughters new Ferrari cars trend on social media.
Social media was awashed with news that, Nigerian billionaire oil marketing mogul, Femi Otedola has bought a Ferrari each for his three daughters.
The daughters, Florence Otedola popularly known as DJ Cuppy, Temi and Tolani were gifted the luxurious cars when their father took them out for shopping.
The news became topical on social media instantly. Entertainers such as Don Jazzy, Davido and Mr. P all took inspiration from the billionaire’s gesture and promised their kid same treatment one day.
The discussion gave birth to drawing comparisons between Femi Otedola and other father’s who don’t have the financial wherewithal to buy cars for their kids.
Many people indirectly belittled their parents because they can’t afford to buy them Ferrari cars as gifts.
It’s against this backdrop that the former aide to former Nigerian president, Goodluck Jonathan has taken to micro blogging platform, twitter to caution those talking down on their fathers with respect to the Otedola issue.
According to him, the cost of the three Ferraris is not up to 1% of Otedola’s worth. He added that, if a parent uses 5% of his worth to educate you and can’t afford you a Ferrari doesn’t make him inferior to Femi Otedola.
He admonished those fond of doing that to desist and rather appreciate the widow’s mite of their “poor” parents.
He tweeted: “Your dad is not less than @realFemiOtedola because he did not buy you a @Ferrari. The cost of 3 Ferraris is less than 1% of Otedola’s worth. If your dad spent 5% of his net worth educating you, he did more than Otedola. Remember the widow’s mite?”
