|A 22-year-old Nigerian ‘invents’ Generator That Uses Water, Not Petrol by Assslayer: 2:30pm On Feb 13, 2016|
If you have memories of the past few months
when you spent N200 or N300 or even more on a
litre of petrol, and you’re already worried about
your survival should another spell of petrol
scarcity resurface, well, it does seem half of your
problems have been solved.
The story has been online for a few days, and it is
fast gaining traction: a Nigerian has sensationally
“invented” a generator powered by water – rather
than petrol, that fuel that sometimes is almost as
expensive as gold. In the real sense of it, an
invention as this does not entirely render petrol
useless; but if you no longer have to worry about
petrolling your generator, why not?
From Baltimore, United States, Karo Kanye
Akamune shared photos of both the inventor and
the invention, supported with a post that reads:
“A Nigerian, Emeka Nelson, creates an electricity
generator that is powered by water
He also invented what he calls the ‘MGBANWE
C12′, a machine that turns non-biodegradable
wastes like plastics, waterproof nylon, etc into
petrol, kerosene, diesel and some other heavy oils
and interlocking stones. In the pictures: L-R: the
Hydroelectric Generator and MGBANWE C12.
“Creative and inventive minds in Africa should be
identified, supported and celebrated. Instead of
marrying a 3rd wife or building a 4th house you
would hardly ever sleep in, invest that money in
people like Emeka Nelson. African ‘angel
investors’ must arise!
“You may not have money to invest. But you can
share this post. You can spread the message in
different ways. You can petition your elected
officials to do more in ensuring the growth of the
Science & Technology sector of the economy.
Always remember, a country that does not
produce man-made goods and services will
always lag behind. Choose prosperity today! And
WORK for it!”
Well, this is not the story. Just a teaser for minds
working at such first-class curiousity as ours here,
while we fetch you details of what exactly Emeka
Nelson has been up to!

Learn to question any claim irrespective of the person making it, be it your pastor or your kinsman. Doing so will protect you against fraudsters like the op.

These are parts of opportunities we allow to slip away in this country whereas the white man will seize it, produce this machine ,give it a better packaging and starts selling and the funny part is that we will be the first to buy it. Its time NSE and coren wake up and let's make something tangible out of this things. I believe if this engineering bodies
embrace this technology the govt will also do something

I am surprised at how easy it is for Nigerians to believe any claim. Looking at your profile picture, I expect you to have some knowledge of science for you to ask the very simple question: How does it work and on what principle is it based on? Only after a reasonable answer is given before you can start taking the claim seriously, otherwise you will be stupìd to praise every crackpot claim as being creative.
