Abe Idehen Nathaniel’s picture on Twitter was shared by his father, who had posted it after he dressed him up as a Sky News reporter for the career day at his school.
Abe, an eight-year old boy, told his father Justice Idehen Nathaniel that his Lagos school, Nigeria, had a career day.
Abe chose Sky News as his career path because he had so many options.
Abe, with the help of her mother, prepared his suit, printed off the Sky News Logo, and wrapped it around his microphone. The task took him nearly four hours.
He told Sky News that news reporters “tell people things they don’t even know” when asked why he chose his career.
“I felt it was important to let people know about things they didn’t already know.
I want to do it in the future, because it sounds like fun.
Idehen Nathaniel, who posted a picture of his son to Twitter, said that he had not expected such a response.
He told Sky News, “I was stunned.” “I expected a like or maybe a tweet, but when I opened my laptop after work, there was a constant stream of likes.”
Mr Idehen Nathaniel, when asked about Abe’s choice of career, said that Sky News was regularly broadcast on his home television.
Sky News is on almost all the time, whether in Nigeria or England.
“When I turned eight, I wanted to sell chocolate wafer cookies!
“But Abe was excited about this, so if he decides in the next 5 to 10 years to do that, then we will provide him with the support that he needs.”
Sandra Idehen Nathaniel, Abe’s mom, agreed. She said: “I asked him whether he wanted be a lawyer or banker, like me. He said no. She said: “He said that he would be a host.”
Sky News’ Gillian Joseph responded to the social media post by saying: “Love him, bless him. If I have the chance, I will. “I’m happy to chat with him.”
Sky News’ Niall Paterson said: “Could I please ask Abe where his suits are from… Because I think he is very dapper indeed!”
Please don’t steal the job of Abe.
Abe’s uncle is a journalist, and that may have inspired him to choose journalism as a career. However, his twin brother Sean has a different plan.
He said he wanted to become a doctor, and appeared on video in a white labcoat, with bright blue goggles.
