- A Nigerian man Emeka Nelson claims to have developed an electricity generator that is powered by water
- The young inventor started a fundraising campaign, hopes to get N2,000,000 (or $4,000, black market rate) asap
- Emeka promises that his new invention, an "ultra modern bio digester" is coming soon
Nsukka-born Emeka Nelson claims to have invented a generator that runs on water, a machine for recycling non-biodegradable wastes. His third invention, a bio digester, is under development.
A graduate of the National Metallurgical Training Institute has started a fundraising campaign on social media trough his partner, Karo Kanye Akamune.
Apparently, the young man needs at least N1,000,000 (about $2,000) right now for continuation of his research and products' improvements. The next step is to collect two million naira from angel investors.
"Creative and inventive minds in Africa should be identified, supported and celebrated. Instead of marrying a third wife or building a forth house you would hardly ever sleep in, invest that money in people like Emeka Nelson," Karo Kanye Akamune urges Nigerians on Facebook.
Emeka runs his private company, Creative E Machines, based in Awka, Nigeria.
"I can imagine a world where human feaces, urine etc are turned into cooking gas and best of fertilizers for our farmers.
"I can imagine a society where this machine replaces all our soak away and pit latrine toilet systems. Creative minds tech team is working on it now," the scientist/engineer wrote in his post dated February 6, announcing the new invention.
"Always remember, a country that does not produce man-made goods and services will always lag behind," Karo Kanye Akamune notes.
The call for funds was again made in a repeated post in the year 2017:
