A young man identified as Solomon Ukoha has built a mini power plant to enable people in his community charge their phones and other devices.
An entrepreneur, Ndubuisi Ekekwe shared the video of the power plant and revealed that the teenage boy allowed people in his community to make use the device after building it.
The power plant which Ukoha from Ohafia in Abia state built also supplies light for their home.
Sharing the video on his LinkedIn page, Professor Ekekwe wrote: “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.

We complied!
