Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a civil engineer, Ahmed Yahaya, who became popular after using thousands of bottles to build a house spoke more about what influenced his decision to go through with that kind of recycling.
The man said he used pet bottles to design the house in an African round shape, such that there are three rooms that could be used for different purposes.
The civil engineer stated that the discarded bottles are gathered from different dumps in Kaduna. He added that during the collection, nobody took them seriously, asking why they were busy collecting waste around.
