Frank Darko, an innovative Ghanaian man who went viral after building a water bicycle five years ago, has come up with another groundbreaking invention.
With the increased rate of incidents of locals drowning because the boats they were in capsized, Frank decided to produce floating aboboyaa to help curb the disturbing situation.
I built a water bicycle to ferry school children in deprived communities 5 years ago but unfortunately, things didn't go as I expected. Since the problem hasn't been solved, I still believe I have the responsibility to provide engineering and innovational means of transport on our water bodies," he told YEN.com.gh.

They can be used to carry goods; fishermen can also use them for fishing activities, and also, it can be used for tourism purposes," he said.
Frank reveals that DAJU has more functionalities, but he's currently faced with financial challenges as he has run out of funds.
