Another Nigerian has shown that this country is blessed with enough human resources to bring about the desired development that will give the nation a pride of place in the world.
An 18-year-old Nigerian from Enugu state, Ugwu Chiagoziem, has built an inverter among other things like power banks, and a hybrid battery system.
According to Enugu Metropolitan Network, Ugwu went to the Government Technical College, Enugu where he studied power electronics.
In 2016, after his brother encouraged him toward his innovative path, he was said to have built an inverter circuit with CD4047 which could give power to a mobile phone. Shortly after, it got faulty but that did not discourage him as he trudged on.
With his rare talent, Enugu Metropolitan Network said that he became close to his school teacher who started training him to burnish his skill.
When he was in SS2, he represented his school at a contest that was put together by the federal government. His special interest is in energy conversion.
Below are people's reactions to his innovation:
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a team of engineers led by Alex Ephraim Akwiwu has produced a car called IYI Celebrity, with locally-sourced materials.
The company, Ephraim and Jeoana Akwiwu Auto Shop, launched the car in Owerri, the capital of Imo state.
It should be noted that Alex was trained in Europe as an automobile engineer. He is also the CEO of the company that built the IYI Celebrity.

The CEO said that the plan to go into local production of vehicles began in 2011, an idea which was later made possible with the application of advanced technology in motor production and maintenance.
In 2016, the company produced its first vehicle named IYI Combatant with a new version of the car released a year after in 2017.
When commenting on the new version of the vehicle, Engineer Alex said: “This is a friendlier version than the “Combatant” which was produced in 2017.
“Furthermore, its aggressive aesthetic and exhaust was made in consideration of the kind of road or terrain it was meant to ply on.”
The engine and transmission of the new vehicle are reportedly at the rear side and it is powered by 1.8 litre engine with economical fuel consumption and low C02 emission.
