Nigerians react

Massive reactions have trailed the tweet of a Nigerian man who disclosed that his 5-year-old daughter called him by his name to get his attention.

The man, identified as Andrew Daniels, had taken to micro-blogging platform, Twitter, to make this disclosure on Sunday, July 17.

According to him, his daughter called him by his name after he ignored her constant rambling about the things she wants.

He tweeted,

“My daughter na case. She was saying to me “ daddy I want this, I want that” I ignored her and continued what I was doing. Next thing she shouted “ Andrew are you not hearing me”?”

The tweet has garnered a lot of reactions from Nigerians who shared their two cents on his daughter’s action.

While some kicked against the five-year-old calling her dad by his name, others stated that it’s not a big deal.
