See What This 16-Year-Old Boy Constructed In Aba

The 16-year-old boy in Aba(Abia State) named ” Uchenna Okwu Sunday,” whom I told you I saw his creativity in Aba previously; has constructed a prototype lamp for people living around who are Traders.

The story I heard is that him(Uchenna), have been repairing electrical fault in people’s houses and teaches his mates which has made him more popular in his area. Recently, a man-trader came to him and asked him to help construct a lamp which will produce light while he sells at evening due to power failure in such area.


I was surprised to hear that in less than 24 hours, Uchenna has constructed this prototype lamp and gave to the man-trader. In addition, when other Traders saw it, they were amazed and they demanded he constructs for them too at which he sells #200 each.

When I interviewed him on how he constructed the lamp, I learnt he used a rubber type of plate, four pieces of wires, batteries, a plain wood, a burnt electric bulb that he inserted a torch bulb inside. This boy you see is a school-drop-out in his SS3 due to financial issues.
