When people learn they are the wealthiest in their circle, Clergywoman Funke Felix-Adejumo believes they should move on from friendships and partnerships.
This was the clergywoman’s point of view when she spoke at a recent church program.
According to her, if one finds himself in a midst of people who are not wealthy, he should abscond that group of people and start mingling with other wealthy people.
In her words;
”Joseph befriended wealthy prisoners. Butler, bakers, connected prisoners, even in the prison. Some of you, you are the best person in your group. Wake up. That group should expire tonight. You are the richest among your friends, when you sit on the table, that relationship has expired. Move on. Befriend wealthy mentors. You may not like that nose. It doesn’t matter. It is not their nose you came to look at. It is what they are. You look like what you look at.
There is one man called Okeowo. There is one man called Okoya. His wife…whether she is the 15th wife, it is not my business. God has a way of saving them. I am look at them and see dignity, see royalty.
We are lost in the church clapping. ALl we do is cause traffic jam every Sunday”
Below are some reactions evoked from netizens who chanced upon her assertion.

For goodness’ sake Madam what are you saying? This is why the populace’s mentality is destroying day by day. Sidestepping good people for wealthy mentors okwa ya? People whose income sources you cannot even verify? This is the kind of advice that will encourage folks to leave good and trusted circles (because you’re more successful than them) for the likes of Invictus Obi and Hushpuppy.

Even Jesus dined with 12 disciples who were in no way spiritually powerful like him. This woman talks to much and end up not making sense. Relationship isn’t all about money….the person without money could be with wisdom. We all have a part to play to make the world a better place.

Clergywoman Funke Felix-Adejumo has shared her point of view but it will be wise for such a wealthy person to put his poor friends and invest in them. The popular saying nobody knows tomorrow applies to this in everyway.
