A young teenager named Umar Zaki of Jekada Fari Ward in Gombe state exhibited his talent by solely designing and constructing a NNPC Fuel Tanker Model with local materials.


Photos of the teenager and his creative work have gone viral on social media after a Facebook user shared pictures of the young man and his work.


The truck is painted in red, white and yellow with NNPC logo. Umar’s engineering seems to be first of its kind and Nigerians who have stumbled on the photos of his creation are proud of him.


The boy’s pictures were shared online in order to get the attention of the state governor and other well meaning Nigerians who can help him achieve his true potential by harnessing his gift.
