Young boy builds power plant, invites people to charge their phones, gadgets

The video of the power plant was shared by an entrepreneur identified as Ndubuisi Ekekwe, who said the boy allowed people in his community to make use of the power plant after building it.

Ukoha, who hails from Abia state, has joined other young creative Nigerians in proving that talents abound in every nook and cranny of the country.

“That is Genco (for generating electricity), transco (for transmission of electricity) and disco (for distributing electricity). The young man built the power plant, created the transmission lines and opened it for people to come and charge their phones, etc. Like I tell people, there is nothing new in Nigeria.

The news now is that in the Southeast Nigeria, people are creating alternate frequencies (yes, illegal) and government in the 2021 budget will spend close to N700 million to track those frequencies. “I am looking for a leader who can help harness the immense talent of young people in Nigeria. I tasted this many years ago in FUTO when my Vice Chancellor summoned me that the campus radio station we had designed to serve the university community had been banned by Sani Abacha, and that it must be stopped. We complied!

“Look at this video…and tell me why General Electric (GE) would not wish this boy was born in America!”
