Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Nigeria was thrown into great sorrow as a popular scientist, Ezekiel Izuogu of Akokwa clan in Ideato North local government of Imo state, died.
The popular inventor died on Saturday, July 18, after he was sick for a while as revealed by family sources.
It should be noted that Izuogu once competed for the Imo state governorship election and was a BoT member of the All Progressives Congress.
His invention astounds the world He created the Z-600 in 1997 when he was a lecturer at the Federal Polytechnic Nekede, making it first Africa's indigenous produced car.
“The African dream machine as 90% of its parts were sourced locally. At a projected sales cost of $2000, it would have taken the world by storm and become the cheapest and most affordable car on earth.
“With mass production planned under Izogu Motors plant in Naze Owerri, the prospects of an industrial revolution in Igbo land and Nigeria, was in the making,” the BBC described the car.
He got FG's attention but not the grant Another thing worthy of note is that after the federal government under the late General Sani Abacha’s regime gave the car a clean bill of roadworthiness, it promised to give the inventor a grant of N235 million. The grant, however, never came.
