OPB Opia noted that the young boy sacrificed a lot of resources to build the motorbike, adding that people would assist him in proceeding to the next stage if they were aware.
He wrote: “If people can imagine what personal resources of his got him to this stage, they will rather put up links to resources that will help him proceed to the next stage. Innovators are driven by imaginations….”
Engr Babatunde Segun wrote: “This is one of the people government must train and develop their technological ideas to develop our nations productivity ideas. Where is Ministry of Science and Technology?
“Not all Nigerian youth are lazy, please encourage home grown ideas and invention. Let the boy be trained to work with Defence and Security institutions in producing locally our own goods.”
Olúwatóbi Williams B wrote: “The video reminds of a popular image of the Wright brothers during flight. That was over 100 years ago. Kenneth has done exceptionally well to build this. Prof, if I had a chance to speak with Kenneth, I would tell him to direct this energy to build drones and quadcopters because that way, we may still have an edge in developing systems peculiar to our terrain.”
