- A yet-to-be-identified old man has shown that creativity and hardwork is not affected by age
- The man reportedly 70 years old and said to be a welder built a tipper himself
- He then transports sands for block making industries to neighbouring villages where they are needed
An old man in Osun state has proven the saying that age is nothing but numbers right.
The yet-to-be-identified man defied his old age to engage in somewhat labour that ordinarily someone of his age shouldn't be found doing.
In a Facebook post made by one Adeoyi Soji, the man reportedly 70 years old was said to have created a tipper.
With the tipper, he transports sands for industries that specialize in building blocks for building construction to villages in Osun.
Adeoyi lamented that despite the man being advanced in age, he still had much to offer but is wasting away in a village.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported about a 38-year-old man who creates speakers with jerrycans.
He said he started learning how to do it while in school and had no idea it would be his source of income one day.
Legit.ng correspondents asked him how he came about placing speakers in jerrycans without cutting open the top, sides or bottom. The man in his late thirties said it was just him playing with objects and recycling objects.
