Mr. Hadi Usman, a 67-year-old man from Gombe state, Northern region of Nigeria has gone viral for inventing a cooking stove that runs on water.
Unlike most of the existing stoves that uses kerosene or gas to produce fire, Usman says his invention requires air pressure and water to produce same result.
The extremely talented man showcased the stove in a video to the admiration of many people. The 67-year-old was motivated by the inflation of prices of cooking gas in Nigeria.
His invention was lauded by Nigerians as it is considered to come at a time due to economic reasons; especially the spike in the price of gas as earlier mentioned.
He is soliciting the support of Nigeria’s federal government to assist him to mass-produce the water-based cooking stove.
“I wish relevant institutions and bodies can support towards patenting the project for mass production to at least help the without buying kerosene or gas to cook their food by using water.”
From reports, this is not the first time that Hadi Usman is noticed for his ingenuity and inventions over the years. Some time ago, he was able to assemble a radio transmitter.
