“I’m sorry dad”: Nigerian man uses radio station to beg his father in (video)
A Nigerian man has apologised to his father after he disobeyed him and became a carpenter.
The father wanted his son to become a medical doctor, but that was not what the young man wanted for himself.
His apology was captured in a viral video.
Appearing in the Brekete Family radio programme, the man said his father who is a lawyer should forgive him for disappointing him.
He first asked for permission to publicly address his father who he said is in Kaduna state and was probably listening to the program.
He told his father that he wants to be close to him again.
According to him, he is not a bad boy and he hasn’t joined any gang to do bad things.
The carpenter said he is using his carpentry work to touch other people’s lives. The video posted on Instagram by @breketefamily has stirred reactions from Nigerians.

Skillful carpenter is as equal a architect or building engineer part of his training.he can design a building or create any form work.
