67-year-old man, Hadi Usman has invented a cooking stove that uses water and air pressure to generate fire.
Usman, an electronic technician, based in Jekadafari, Gombe State said he invented the stove so as to subsidize the cost of using kerosene and gas.
Usman has been contacted by the US, Germany and other local institutions seeking to do mass production of the water-powered cooking stove.
Remarkably, the 67-year-old Nigerian technician has been inventing products since 1970s and 80s.
Usman stated in a TV documentary monitored by Kasatintin News that ‘On 23rd January 1980, GASKIYA TA FI KWABO, a vernacular tabloid published by the defunct Nigerian Newspaper reported how I assembled a radio transmitter and operated a community radio station in Gombe metropolis. I have a copy here.
‘Since the broadcast of my latest invention by Wonderland TV, I have received over 500 phone calls over the project.
‘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’.
The Gombe State University, the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation and the Northeast Development Commission (NEDC) have promised to support the inventor.
