Solomon who is 24 years old from Ohafia Abia state, constructed a transformer that can generate light using crude oil. His construction can power a whole building, community and state at large.
However, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, has met the 24 year old transformer constructor, after the boy went viral with his works. The governor has awarded him full scholarship to gain more education at what he is good at amongst many other promises he made to him.
The Abia State Government will empower this young man, if they do that, many people will be happy to showcase their talent in order to help the state and country.
It is sad that, so many great talents and ideas die because of lack of support not only from the government but also from the family and society at large, we only accuse the government of not supporting innovation, forgetting that we also have faults, we can't continue waiting for the government for everything, let's put our minds together and work towards the common goal of every individual.
