” An invention has to make sense in the world it finishes in”. This has been proven by young Inventors in Nigeria times without number. They are capable of transforming genuine ideas into reality! These group of smart and hardworking youths have created many things for humanity to see.
In the past few decades we have seen many inventors within Nigeria created a few things such as prototype of drones, cars, devices and some other equipment that is beneficial to humanity. Surprisingly, many never end up manufacturing in full capacity, which really get young inventors within Nigeria discouraged. This should seriously call for concern from the relevant authorities that is responsible to enhance continuous research and development, and also empower inventors that possess great innovative skills.
Despite various form of challenges encountered by these young Inventors, an array of hope sprang up immensely after Nigerians witnessed the growth and development of Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Nigeria Limited who produced various form of vehicles and sold in large quantity. The Federal government also purchased many vehicles from the manufacturing company.
In 2019, many people in Nigeria and across other Continents were astonished when Jerry Mallo designed a fast moving car! The Inventor didn’t commence immediately with the creation of the vehicle upon his return from the United Kingdom where he had further his study to possess hands-on experience on automotive engineering, rather he decided to reduce the gap in the non-availability of agro-equipment, he went ahead to design and manufacture basic machines that can help his community with some agro processes to minimize cost and also save time. ‘’Charity they say begins from home’’. This was a feat that many applauded!
Research and development is a vital means for achieving sustainable growth and also maintaining an apropos product in the market. Bennie Technologies founded by Jerry Mallo has mainly been able to carry out research and development via self-funding and micro-financing from some financial institutions and also with the tremendous support of the Plateau state government. Jerry Mallo, is truly determined to improve on the first model and desires that his dream move to the next level through proper funding of his invention, this will encourage him and the entire team at Bennie Technologies to produce more fast moving vehicles for the usage of hundreds of thousands of people across Africa and other continents of the world. The car has a plausible competitive advantage! The sports car is produced with fibers that possess the characteristics of glass which is absolutely different from the usual cars which are seen in Nigeria that is made from aluminum. In case the car crashes, the victims from the accident don’t get crushed, since the car would break into pieces and the victims are well protected by airbags.
Though the first fast moving car in Nigeria has been manufactured and also tested for the whole world to see, but it shouldn’t end there. There should be consistent support from relevant authorities, void of tribal prejudice and religious sentiments for Bennie Technologies and all other inventors across the nooks and crannies of Nigeria!
