Africans are rejoicing over the invention of a gas cooker which does not use kerosene or gas by a 67-year-old man at a time when the price of gas has increased significantly. The man who goes by the name Hadi Usman demonstrated in a video how the product works.
He appealed to the government to support in terms of patent and finance to produce more and help the masses. “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.” He said.
In the video which was shared by PRNigeria News (you can watch below), the old man is seen practically pumping air into a water container which then transfers a content to the stove to generate fire. According to him, his invention relies solely on air pressure and water instead of kerosene and gas.
His invention is being tagged as the “people’s invention” as it will relieve many people, especially the less privileged financially amid rising worry in the increasing price of cooking gas in the country. The talented man is based in Jekadafari in Gombe State – Nigeria.
Reports say he has in the past demonstrated his scientific knowledge as he assembled a radio transmitter and also operated a community radio station. At an older age, Usman who is calling for state support aims to establish a full organization to train more youth and also patent and produce more.
