A Nigerian social and political critic, Reno Omokri, has spoken on the trending Ferraris of the Otedolas. In a tweet he made on Wednesday, September 16, he told tweeps that even their dads do not buy them Ferraris as Femi Otedola did, this does not make them inferior.

He added that the cost of the Ferraris is less than 1% of the billionaire's wealth. Reno said that if one's dad spent 5% of his nett worth providing education, he clearly did more than what Otedola pulled off with the fast cars. Reno's tweet read:

"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 nett worth educating you, he did more than Otedola. Remember the widow’s mite?"

Since his tweet was posted, it has gathered various opinions from many as people engaged his post in a very objective way.

Below are some people's reactions:

@Emmanuelchison said: This comparison or example is not right. 1% or 5% both have done well for their children. Only fools will not appreciate their parents but wished they were like others. If you don't appreciate little from ur parents, when u give ur kids d world, they will not appreciate u."

@Ag_Qris said: "I showed my mom the 3 @ferrari, and told her she has given me things worth more than that. he prayed I get them for my children. The prayers are worth more than anything in the world! In turn I told her she will live to see that I get her an expensive car to drive to her farm."
