Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Young Ghanaian innovator and engineer, Abdul Aziz, has built a three-wheeled motorcycle that runs on water.
Aziz joins the rank of young gifted hands, including Frank Darko, the first Ghanaian to invent the country's first-ever water bicycle, leaping over daunting challenges to create from their limited resources.
Unlike Frank Darko's floating water bicycle, Aziz's technology requires an upgrade as he struggles to keep it running on water.
In a video online, the young Ghanaian innovator takes his water-bike prototype for a test drive on the Weija lake, but his bike repeatedly goes off during testing on the lake.
Despite the setback, Aziz believes he has something monumental to offer the country as he attributes the drive to build a motorcycle that runs on water to the events of June 3, 2015.
In an interview with Inventor Darko, Aziz revealed that he was a victim of the June 3 disaster, which has inspired him to invent the masterpiece to help him escape a similar natural catastrophe in the future.
Aziz has made impressive strides with his invention, but he has disclosed he needs urgent assistance to advance aspects of the bike, revealing that he has other initiatives he wants to introduce.
According to him, his purse had been drained because of his recent project, which still needs to be perfected before use.
Aziz speaks about his work in the video below.
