Talented Nigerian man builds sports car
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported about a talented Nigerian man who built sports car.
The man said he had his secondary school education at the Polytechnic High School in Ibadan. He said he would have wanted to study mechanical engineering at the Olabisi Onabajo University but he was denied admission on two different occasions.
When his admission finally came, he was given plant science instead. The young man said he started building the car during his final year.
With a strong passion for machines, he decided that his first car will be the one built with his hands. On speaking about his challenges as an engineer, he said:
“The first one is money, I couldn't get sponsors, the second is tools and the third is people perspective, what they say about the project but I didn't allow those things to weigh me down.”
