A Nigerian man, Emeka Nelson claims to have invented a generator that runs on water, a machine for recycling non-biodegradable wastes. His third invention, a bio digester, is under development, naija.com reports.

The young inventor, a graduate of the National Metallurgical Training Institute has been getting assistance from his partner, Karo Kanye Akamune, a technology developer based in the U.S., who started a fundraising campaign on social media.

Nelson reportedly needs at least N1,000,000 (about $5,000) to continue with research and products’ improvements.

Karo Kanye Akamune made an impassionate plea to Nigerians on his Facebook page saying “Creative and inventive minds in Africa should be identified, supported and celebrated…. 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,” Akamune said.
