For designing and constructing a NNPC fuel tanker model, a young boy, Umar Maizaki, has been awarded a scholarship in Gombe state.
The young man came up with the fuel tanker model by using locally sourced materials all by himself.
The young boy was offered scholarship from secondary school to university level by the Gombe state government after attention was drawn to the work of art.
Gombe state commissioner for youth, Malam Farouq Yarma, recently hosted Umar in his office to inform him about the scholarship. Umar's design project has also been funded by Gombe state government in order for him to maximize his talent. See photos below:
