There really is no limit to the creativity exhibited by Nigerian youths. A case in point is Joshua Egesi, a University of Benin (UNIBEN) student.
Joshua used over 6,000 bottle cover to make a beautiful portrait of the UIBEN's vice-chancellor. According to Ijeoma Daisy, that style of portrait is the biggest in Africa.
This kind of art is a very good way to recycle and proves that art could serve as a good means of recycling to save the environment from pollution.

Meanwhile, Jerry Mallo, the Nigerian man who created the first carbon fibre sports car in 2019, built a state-of-the-art ventilator as a solution to the scarcity of the equipment in the country.
It should be noted that the machine is still undergoing some technical upgrades so as to meet the world's standard on production.
When showcasing the machine, the creator said building it is necessary as there is a strong need for a kind of ventilator that is accessible and cheap.
He said that African countries have been facing the serious need to get one that is affordable in order to powerfully combat the pandemic.
