“He’s already acquiring a skill and that’s a form of practical education so I don’t think his future is bleak, rather I see a bright future with a formal education which he can still acquire somewhere in the future.”
Responding to @IbejiOsinakachi’s submission, @deyemi_mufasa commented:
“This take is wrong, no matter what he wants to do, a basic education is required.”
@Juicelandlord reacted: “His parents failed him not Nigeria and not asuu.”
@bestman4allmen commented: “The guy is learning what he will become in life, Nigeria is not a country where u rely on collar job alone .. doing this doesn’t stops the boy from going to school….he is surely gonna become a great mechanical engineer.”
