Nigerians hail the boy's talents
Bright Selorm said:
"Too much talented, i wished you were born in a technology country which you can go to a good school to bring out your mechanical engineering skills and dreams."
Alex Olashe Bello wrote:
"Instead of the government to invest in brains like this, they rather loot the money and send their dull children to study in abroad. I pray one developed country sees the potentials in you, and come to take you away."
Power Maeba commented:
"This is very encouraging. I hope our federal government will not allow this boy to be taken away by another foreign country, the way it happened to the Nigerian that’s already making drones for Finland."
Nelson Augstine Opara remarked:
"Nigeria is blessed just that no good leader so bad many talent wasting wait let white people see this video they will give him scholarship to take him with them improve him wait and see."
Jeff David thought:
"Creativity at it's peak. This guy has solved the problem of having to use excavator and tipper in a site by creating a truck that can serve both purposes. Kudos to this you man from Akwa ibom state."
