By Steve Oko

The decision by Nigeria’s billionaire, Femi Otedola, to procure the prestigious and multi million naira  Ferrari cars for her three daughters have got Nigerians talking.

Some say “God punish poverty “, while to some, the gesture amounted to unnecessary waste of scarce resources particularly in the aftermath of the covid -19 lockdown.

According to Vangurd report, Femi Otedola, Nigerian businessman, philanthropist, and former chairman of Forte Oil PLC, an importer of fuel products has gifted his three daughters, Tolani Otedola, Temi Otedola, and Florence Otedola (DJ Cuppy) with new Ferrari vehicles.

This has received some comments from social media users. Some are of the view that in the middle of this pandemic, what must be done it help the poor with the money and not purchasing ‘needless’ expensive gifts.

Otedola is also the founder of Zenon Petroleum and Gas Ltd, and the owner of a number of other businesses across shipping, real estate and finance.

Read some of the funny comments as gathered on Twitter by Vanguard:

@Abu_swag “In a middle of a Pandemic when many people are unemployed and currently struggling to survive? Do you know how many families he can lift out of poverty or how many hospitals, schools would be well equipped with this money? Absolute waste of resources!”

@alexlobaloba “While some have said that Otedola lifted lots of people out of poverty in this pandemic. Go & read about the forerunners of CACOVID, see the amount he donated to the initiative. Come back & compare it to the amount he used to buy these ‘toys’ for his kids. Celebrate with them & pray for God’s blessings.”
