Two teenagers in Anambra state have yet again proven the ingenuity of the Igbo tribe in Nigeria by assembling a helicopter by themselves.
The young inventors, both 18 years of age, were at the reception held by Senator Chris Ngige after the burial of his late father, Pa Pius Okonkwo Ngige, who died at the age of 105.
According to the students of a local technical college, the helicopter was a project they embarked on based on their field of study and believe they would have done better had they gotten more sponsors from well-to-do Nigerians.
In fact, they said that they attended the burial reception because they believe they are likely to meet with the rich and mighty in the state and country who may help sponsor them to make their project even bigger.
One of them said: “The one we produced cannot fly yet because the things required for it to fly are not complete and it took us a while before we could come up with even this small one.
“If we can get people to sponsor us, we are sure of getting more of this projects and even produce an even bigger one which will fly.”
