"I never thought my work could ever go viral like this. It has been a very long and stressful journey for me, but with effort and prayers I kept pushing for my dreams and here I’m today, people are recognizing me gradually. "
Damilola also decried the meagre level of support which has driven others like him to give up on their dreams of building drones.
There are a lot of youths who are interested in the building of drones locally here in Nigeria. Unfortunately, there has been no support. Some people have quit and there are still others who are working and hope to be successful. I’m here today with the support of Honorable Abdulgafar Abiola, and I’m very sure if we get more support from our people and our government, we would be able to locally produce drones here in Nigeria for our security and other purposes."
