Popular Nigerian Table Shaker, Reno Omokri has advised that people should set boundaries when giving.

In a post on Facebook, the former presidential aide opined that an unwise giver may end up as a beggar.

He wrote:

Generosity is good. But too much of everything is not good. The proverb givers never lack is a lie. As a giver, set boundaries, because takers don’t have boundaries. They take and take, until there’s nothing left. Then they will move on to the next fool to take from! No gratitude. Only entitlement.

An unwise giver may end up as a beggar. Scripture does not say giving is profitable. It says wisdom is profitable-Ecclesiastes 10:10. Giving without wisdom is unprofitable. Many people will not remember the 10 times you gave. But they will certainly remember that 1 time you could not give.

Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
