You might have known that Reno Omokri was the Special Assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on New Media, but I bet you might not have heard of Reno’s Nuggets. Mr. Omokri has been daily dropping ‘gems’ on twitter. We had to get in on the action. Disclaimer: Follow these nuggets at your own risk.

1. On the role of wives in their husbands’ friendships.

This one has over 50 retweets!

2. On ladies’ make up. Especially the foundation.

He has obviously not heard of Mac foundation.

3. To all single men with a side eye at baby mamas.

Louder. For those at the back!

4. The parable of the hungry young man and the cook.

This had us like: “Preach, Reno, Preach!!”

5. Another one to the ladies!

*throws make up purse away*

6. This confusing tweet on abortion that really means well.

Zip up!

7. This head-scratching tweet about money and life.

How do you number your days when you don’t know how many you have left?

8. Straight people will overcome gay people with successful marriages.

Oh lord, fix this!

9. This smart tweet about quality of friends.

He’s not wrong.

10. This tweet shading Adams Oshiomhole.

*hot tears of laughter*

11. To all the men with side chics.

“Men want to have sex with sexy women, but they save classy women for marriage. Go for class not sex!” – Reno Omokri

12. Single ladies may or may not be shirts.

I’m not sure.

13. There is a sea of cleavage and buttock-baring girls out there, guys!

Seriously.

14. To the women with in-laws – and Brazilian hair.

I love this one.

15. This one nullifying the power of the bottom.

I’m hurt.

16. Married men also may or may not be cats.

I don’t know anymore. If you enjoyed these, and you want more, you can just go to Reno Omokri’s twitter page to feed yourself.
