In a Twitter post by @OvieAli, 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 the idea behind the car's shape and style.

@_Captain_X_ wondered:

"What's the idea behind the funny shape all the time. As per cartoon."

@3rd_i_ remarked:

"Nice one, but why do electric cars always look this funny tho?"

@almunawwara64 said:

"Nigerian Engineering genius..." and not Muslim, Christian, Hausa, Igbo or Yoruba.... as par 'new world sentimentality reportage syndrome'. "Another good one by a Nigerian as usual."

@omoba007 stated:

''Tag Jelani.. He must see this. An employment opportunity should be offered to him at kona electric cars by Hyundai."
