“Creative and inventive minds in Africa should be identified, supported and celebrated. Instead of marrying a third wife or building a forth house you would hardly ever sleep in, invest that money in people like Emeka Nelson,” Karo Kanye Akamune urges Nigerians on Facebook.

“I can imagine a world where human feaces, urine etc are turned into cooking gas and best of fertilizers for our farmers.
“I can imagine a society where this machine replaces all our soak away and pit latrine toilet systems. Creative minds tech team is working on it now,” the scientist/engineer wrote in his post dated February 6, announcing the new invention.
