A Nigerian man has challenged his daughter doing her MSc programme to graduate with a first class because he spent a lot training her in school.
In a video shared by the girl, the father said he has so far raised N20m to send her to further her education and he expects a stellar academic result at the end.
He warned that if she does not bag a distinction in her Masters degree upon graduation then she should not bother returning to their family home.
The father and his 25-year-old daughter were dating about the possibility of each getting what they want.
The Msc student argued in her defence that it is not easy to excell with good grades and she appealed to her father to be more understanding because the pressure of trying to get first class might take a toll on her mental health.
But her dad said she must learn how to read and pass exceedingly well because they cannot give N20m for her schooling only for her to perform poorly.
He suggested that if she knows she would not be a star student then the family can raise N2m instead of N20m so that she can focus on doing her bag business.
She said that she already got a first class in her bachelor’s degree and that she would not need to push twice as hard now.
At some point, her father talked about banning her from seeing men but she protested vehemently that he should not do that at her age.
She then asked him if he does not want her to get married and he said if that’s the case, she should abandon studies and find a man to marry.
He said that when she gives birth, her kids can take up the pursuit of academic excellence so she would not have to bother.

Meanwhile, a young man identified as Dave Partner has warned African parents about the dangers of sending their children abroad to study at an early age.
In an advisory video making the rounds online, he said any parent who send their kids to school in other countries too early have lost them forever.
According to Dave, the number of times they may see their son or daughter again might not be up to 10 times before they die.
He said the fact that some people are rich enough to send their wards to US, UK or Canada does not mean they should do it when they are still minors.
He explained that they get accustomed to the new sociaty they are living in, and embrace a foreign culture which is alien to that of an African home.
The business trainer said one of the factors which influences a child’s change in character is what he learns in school, either from teachers of his fellow students.
Dave Partner said that the parent might only be able to see them when they graduate or after getting married to a white lady.
He further said that they will also not be interested in taking over the family business because they did not learn anything about it from their mum or dad.
The man stressed that there are a lot of things that change the child overseas which are enough to make them become distant and detached from their roots.
