UNIZIK students manufacture mini bus

This sort of report should be promoted to encourage youth enterprise and creativity in our communities. The story had it that seven graduating students of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka recently achieved a novel feat as they produced a mini bus to the admiration of the university community as well as outsiders.

According to a Vanguard report, the students from the Department of Mechanical Engineering showed they were good not just in theory but in practice.
The journey into car manufacturing in the university started last year, when a group of five students from the same department produced a Formula 1 car called AutoZIK. The seven students include Ezeigwe Chitoo, Obinani Victor, Ezeanolue Ifeanyi, Okoro Chinaza, Ominigbo Fidelis, Nwobodo Nnamdi  and Ogbu Thaddeus.
The report further revealed that the aforementioned students spent over five months constructing the mini bus for shuttles within and around the university with locally sourced materials.

I want to say kudos to them as they continue to make the university and the nation proud.
