According to Mr. Reno Omokri, he said that Mr Adedimeji Lateef copied his nuggets word for word and refused to give him due credits for his work, which is plagiarism and a very dishonest thing to do.

He further stated that he feeds himself from the sales of his books and for someone to just lift his work without giving him proper credits is very wrong.The stolen wisdom nuggets which was posted on Mr omokri’s Twitter page on the 21st day of May, 2018 and on the 10th day of January 2020 respectively, was seen on Mr Adedimeji Lateef’s Instagram page today, the 30th day of September 2020.

Reno took to his instagram and wrote:

Who is this @AdedimejiLateef? What he has done is very dishonest. He stole my #RenosNuggets word for word and refused to give me credit. This is plagiarism. I feed myself and my family from sales of my books. I did not steal government money. For someone to just lift, word for word, without giving credit is wrong! Very wrong.

This was my original #RenosNuggets on May 21, 2018:

It is a mistake to think time is going. Time is not going. Time is here until the world ends. It is you that is going. You don’t waste time. Time is infinite. You waste yourself. You are finite. It is you that grows old and die. Time doesn’t. So make better use of it. And one of the worst things to do with time is comparing yourself to others. A cow eats grass and gets fat but if dog eats it, it will die. Never compare yourself with others. Run your race. What works for one person may be what will kill you. Focus on the gifts and talents God gave you and don’t be envious of the blessings He gave others #RenosNuggets

This was my ORIGINAL RenosNuggets on January 10, 2020:

A cow eats grass and gets fat but if a dog eats it, it wont thrive. Never compare yourself with others. Run your race. What works for one person may kill you. Focus on the gifts God gave you and don’t be envious of the blessings He gave others. True story: There was a pastor in Nigeria who used to preach slowly and deliberately. Because he was popular, other pastors began to copy him. They felt his popularity was in the way he preached. It was not. It was in his calling. It was only when he died that people discovered that he preached that way because he was weakened by cancer.
