#NigeriansAreNotAcriminal: Emeka Made Electricity Generator Powered By Water – Nigerians Reacts
A Nigerian with Facebook account: “Ojie Holdings – Tony Adams” shared positive Nigerian story – Read: A Nigerian Emeka Nelson creates an electricity generator that is powered by water. He also invented what he calls the “MGBANWE C12”, a machine that turns non-biodegradable wastes like plastics, waterproof nylon, etc into petrol, kerosene, diesel and some other heavy oils and interlocking stones. In the pictures: L-R: the Hydroelectric Generator and MGBANWE C12.
Creative and inventive minds in Africa should be identified, supported and celebrated. Instead of marrying a 3rd wife or building a 4th house you would hardly ever sleep in, invest that money in people like Emeka Nelson. African “angel investors” must arise!
Let encourage our best instead of criminalizing Nigerians
