Mini Bus Made By UNIZIK Engineers, Looking Better Than Ever by chitosamax: 3:34pm On Apr 17, 2016
The thought that this mini bus was designed and constructed in Nigeria, by Nigerian Engineers and not foreign Engineers, working here as expatriates; is indeed a hard one to believe, as it is looking more foreign than home made.

The thought that it was produced inside the University workshop of Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka, by 7 Graduate Engineers of Mechanical Engineering Department, of the Faculty of Engineering, is certainly a hard bone to swallow.

These lads have given in their best, to put up this gigantic project within a very short frame of time, and thus, it has become the talk of the town.

One will wonder how undergraduates, who know they have got very limited time to stay in the University and so, should enjoy their last days within the 4-walls of the University, still gave in to stressful and strenuous nights at the workshop, just to write their names on the sands of time.

These guys are worth all the laurels and awards in this country at this particular point in time and thus, be given immediate employment, so that their brains and zeal towards invention are kept in line.

They are:
EZEIGWE CALLISTUS CHITOO
OBINANI VICTOR CHIMDIKE
NWOBODO NNAMDI MIRACLE
OGBU THADDEUS IKENNA
OMINIGBO FIDELIS IGHO
EZEANOLUE IFEANYI EMMA
OKORO CHINAZA


Obliviously, these students are geniuses, as it is only people in that category that can put up something like this, using crude equipment and 100% local content. They improvised for barely everything that can be found in that mini bus, from the chassis to its roofing.

The bus was even test driven in front of the Minister of state for Education, Prof Anthony Onwuka and other top dignitaries present during the National Universities Commission (NUC), held in UNIZIK. This goes a long way to tell the world out there that, this is Naija's giant invention, its has been tested, and its indeed it can be trusted.

A warm kudoz! to these guys, for it is certain that a bright future awaits them. A big congratulations to their supervisor and the Head of Department at that time, Dr. C.H Achebe, for giving his boys every necessary vigor they needed to carry out this work, and above all, for being leading by example.


We wish them the best in their field of specialization, as we look forward to bringing our country on the top list of Innovators in the world.

with the current economic condition of Nigeria, how much can you muster to undertake such a project? Coupled with the fact that Nigerian universities don't teach jack.


Learn to appreciate people's efforts instead of ridiculing them.

OP, you have not communicated. You are just hailing them without giving technical information. Is it solar, battery or fuel powered? What is the speed? etc

Lastly, a link to a video of it moving.

You can't post a picture of phone and not tell us the OS at least...haba!

Not hating but I think we should concentrate on making one or two stroke engines from 100% locally fabricated materials.

What's the whole idea of designing the chassis of a vehicle from imported materials?

Beating metal sheets over assembled engine parts already in existence is for me not worthy technology.

Let us make simple motorcycles, wheels and pistons locally.
Ignitions, combustion engines and shock absorbers.

That is the technology.

JOKE OF THE DAY!
An old farmer wrote a letter to his son in prison. "Son, this year I will not plant cassava
and yam because I can't dig the field, I know if you were here you would have helped me". The son replied his father "Dad don't even think of digging the field because that's where I buried the money I stole".
The NIGERIAN POLICE & PRISON'S on reading this letter went early in the morning and dug the whole field in search of the money but nothing was found. The next day the son wrote his father again "Dad you can now plant your cassava and yam this is the best I can do from here."
Dad replied "haaa my son, you are too powerful indeed, even in prison you still command police men to work for me. I was so
surprised to see the IGP and his team holding hoes and shovels, digging my farm. I will write to you when I want to harvest.
