Nigerians are talented people who love to put their knowledge to test and create new innovations for the development of the country. A deaf Nigerian man identified as Tagbubo Chukwu has proved to be one of those talented Nigerians after he built a tipper truck from scratch. The man displayed his invention at the ongoing international week for the deaf held in Akwa, the capital of Anambra state.
It was gathered that the deaf crafts exhibition program is the first to be held in the state. Chukwu reportedly drove the tipper all the way from Onitsha to Awka for the event.
In an interview, the talented man said he started building the tipper a year ago without being trained by a professional engineer.
Chukwu also noted that he graduated from the special school for the deaf in Onitsha in 2015. According to Chuks Ezewuzie who represented Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state at the event, the state would assist the development of people with rare skills.
Ezewuzie who was amazed by the genius’ invention as he sat in the tipper expressed his astonishment on the construction.
