Veteran Nollywood actress, Eucharia Anunobi has taken to social media to slam people who spend billions to build palatial mansions in their village where they rarely visit.
Eucharia Anunobi Advises Nigerians
In a video shared on her Instagram page, the actress said it’s foolish for rich people to build mansions in their home towns where they visit once or twice a year, or where they may eventually retire to.
Anunobi advised Nigerians to build something moderate and cute so that they can be easily managed, rather than waste money building houses that are rarely inhabited.
She also argued that the money invested in such mansions could be used in building affordable estates for people, noting that people need to always ask God for the wisdom to do the right thing.
Eucharia Anunobi, “Why build monumental monuments as village homes that you don’t live in regularly but visit once or twice a year, and where you may not even retire to, or even if you eventually retire to it, its manageability becomes a big problem.
“Why don’t you rather invest in building estates and provide affordable housing for humanity. You may not like it but that’s the truth. If it is a house where you live and wake up every morning and look at the windows and look at the door handles and they are made of gold, silver and brass, fantastic!”
“But you go and sink in your village where you rarely stay, house, houses, or an empire that you have suck in billions of naira where you would rarely stay, is that not foolishness? One of the things we need in this clime is to always ask God for wisdom to do the right thing..”
