The Minister of Science and Technology Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu rode in a wooden car made by one Ahmed Aliyu to the kick off ceremony of the Technology and Innovation Expo (#Techno2017) at Eagles Square in Abuja.
The expo was organised by the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology.
Aliyu said apart from the engine, wheels and tyres, the materials used in making the open-roofed car were locally sourced.
Aliyu who named the car “Amara” said that he drove it from Bida, Niger to Abuja (about 250km) and used about 23 litres of fuel.
He said that he used a motorcycle engine to make the car.
