- A group of young scholars have demonstrated great abilities in the area of automobile creation
- The Nigerian students creatively designed and created a Jeep prototype using locally sourced materials
- They appeal to well-meaning individuals and the government to provide them with financial support to aid its completion
A group of Nigerian students have again confirmed the narrative that the country has never been lacking in creative talents in whatsoever field of endeavour.
The young scholars, in a post on their Facebook page Creative Tinker Tech, showcased the prototype of a Jeep they had created.
In series of posts, the bright students - numbering about seven - showed how they used locally sourced irons and other materials to come about the automobile design.
From the images made available, the car looks just like any normal Jeep but had an outlook of something that needs some finishing touches to bring out its beauty.
According to the students of Auchi Polytechnic, Auchi, unlike the normal Jeep, their own innovation comes with unique features it employs in road navigation.
They went on to appeal to the government and good-spirited individuals for support and financial assistance in order to complete the innovation.
The post on their Facebook page read in part:
"Get to know innovation in another dimension as Students of Auchi Polytechnic, Auchi, unveils an AUTOMOBILE DESIGN with amazing features as a means of navigating the Technological World.
"This is another touch in the space of Technological Development, and mind-blowing reflections in creativity.
"Stay tuned,as we get you updated every now and then, regarding this Innovation.
"We are using this Medium to solicit for sponsorship from the general public to enable this DESIGN be completed.
"Inappropriate funding has been a bottleneck during the course of Designing this Prototype."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that social media users recently celebrated a Nigerian genius who led a team of engineers that saw the creation and design of an electric car in Turkey at the age of 21.
In a Twitter post, @OvieAli revealed that Abbas had led a team of brainy engineers who designed and manufactured a weird-looking electric car in Turkey. The tweep shared an image of the Nigerian engineering genius along with some pictures of the car.
Some Nigerians bemoaned the level of brain-drain that is prevalent in the country, others wondered about the idea behind the car's shape and style.
