Meet Ephraim Akwaiwu, the Igbo man who locally Manufactured a Combatant Car for Nnamdi Kanu

The Igbo nation is widely known as a creative and innovative people who know how to do things in an extraordinary way. The Nigerian youg lads as over the years created a way for themselves, a way to create the none existing and to bring back the pride of the nation. As a nation who depend so much on importation and less local production, it's a thing of great joy when we see more innovative local item been brought to limelight and today on this article we would be discussing about Ephraim Akwaiwu

Ephraim Akwaiwu is an engineer who lives and also owns a mechanic workshop in Imo States. Sometime around 2016 Ephraim swept the Nigerian car enthusiast community by storm after building his own combatant vehicle by only assembling materials which he could find in the local area. This went viral in all social media platforms which resulted to so many demands for his vehicles

Ephraim creates his own custom designs for all his manufactured vehicles and this kept a positive distinctive mark in his works

One of his project that sold him out was the combatant car he manufactured which he also dedicated to Nnamdi kanu as a product that was made in Igboland. One of the major things thing you could easily notice in the combatant car and some of his other vehicles is that it is proudly labeled Made-in-Nigeria product, this gesture is boiled out of Ephraim's love and desire to support and grow the Nigerias locally made products. It is his desire to see Nigerias progress beyond the shores of Africa and to the world in all.

Of a truth this man's creativity and innovation needs to be spread to the outside world for international residents to once more treasure the diligence and creativeness of Nigerians. One thing that we can note that is lacking in this country is support. Nigeria has all it takes to take over the world but lack of support has being the limitation factor. If someone like Ephraim could get all the support he needed, especially from the government, I believe he would make a great difference in the country and perhaps add more support to the likes of Innosson who are also building the made in Nigeria initiatives massively

Ephraim spent most of his life time studying abroad before he decided to come to Nigeria precisely, Imo State with a strong will and ambition to join other forces in building this nation to a better country with a brighter future for the world to see

Ephraim Akwaiwu is a distinctive ngineer who is operating his own personal workshop in Owerri where he makes vehicles with his own designs. The workshop is an attention grabber among a few other mechanized and automated workshops around the South Eastern part of Nigeria. His flagship design, the combatant was wholly manufactured by him in Imo State. It can be recall that in 2016, the 2016 model of the combatant car was dedicated to Nnamdi kanu for inspection by Ephraim and the 2017 model of the car was specially made for the Ipob leader.

The IPOB leadership, Nnamdi kanu is a man who is also known with financing some creative talent across the Igbo Land and has been an instrument of inspiration to many young Igbo creative. Nnamdi kanu is the pioneer of the Indigenous people of Biafran movement (IPOB)
