Francis David, a 13-year-old boy, who works as an apprentice in an electrical workshop has shared his dreams of being an engineer with Legit.ng. The young boy who has tried fixing various electrical items says he is interested in building a television set.
The apprentice revealed that he has been at the electrical workshop for about six months; during this period of time, he has been able to learn many things. He talked about the instruments he uses in working daily and wowed the correspondent of Legit.ng by explaining what he does with each of them.
Legit.ng crew had the opportunity to meet the young chap in Lokoja, Kogi state. He was calm and collected during the interview as he explained what his routine is like and how he has been coping so far at the workshop.
David’s interest in engineering increased because he wanted to be able to repair spoilt things in his environment. Of everything that he wants to learn how to do, building a television set is top of the list. He says he believes he can make the television set as this will give him the opportunity to sponsor himself in school.
His parents are traders who do not have anything against his current passion; he also said he is happy when he sees other young children learning one art or the other. He has been able to repair so many things since he started.
The young apprentice revealed that his best subject in school is mathematics. Although he admitted being scared of being shocked, that fear is allayed with the fact that he does not need to come in direct contact with the current as there is an equipment for checking if an appliance carries current or not.
David is not interested in making just any kind of television; his interest lies in building a plasma TV set. He went on to mention some of the things he might need to make it. He was enthusiastic about the making of the TV as he revealed all that he needs to do to make it work while coupling the components.

Legit.ng correspondent asked him if he has made any money so far working as an apprentice. To this, he replied with a yes and said he has made about eight hundred naira. He said that he used this money in buying a pair of shoes.
Mr Ajayi David, the boss under which the young boy is learning, confirmed his story saying he is the youngest apprentice he has ever had. The boss said he is smart and eager to learn. He believes he is at an advantage compared to the other apprentices because of his age. The middle aged man said he will end up being a better person by the time he is done learning at his workshop.
