Joshua used over 6,000 bottle cover to make a beautiful portrait of the UIBEN's vice-chancellor. According to Ijeoma Daisy, that style of portrait is the biggest in Africa.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Jerry Mallo, the Nigerian man who created the first carbon fibre sports car in 2019, built a state-of-the-art ventilator as a solution to the scarcity of the equipment in the country.

It should be noted that the machine is still undergoing some technical upgrades so as to meet the world's standard on production.

When showcasing the machine, the creator said building it is necessary as there is a strong need for a kind of ventilator that is accessible and cheap.

He said that African countries have been facing the serious need to get one that is affordable in order to powerfully combat the pandemic.

"It looked so much fun, and I thought it's not fair if only children played it. I thought life would be more fun if I knew how to play it. So I started playing, at first while no one was watching,” she said.

Aside from being a gamer, Mori also keeps all the consoles and game software she has bought over the years, saying she treasures them as they are memories.

Her present game console is PlayStation 4 and she is much into action games. She spoke about the difficulty of the gaming genre, detailing how she grew to like it.

"I didn't touch it until recently because it's difficult to play. But recent action games are visually spectacular, and they often use actors for characters. So I'm really obsessed with it now,” she said.
