Speaking about the video, Professor Ekekwe said:

"They call it Italian Grand Prix but those days in the village it was something more amazing: Akpurachi ride. Yes, you get a “ballrex” with an old bicycle chain, put some wooden things together, stay on a hilly place, and get gravity to get you down.

"This lends credence to one of my posts on how creative and innovative the African child can be even without going to school to study physics, chemistry, biology or engineering for that matter.
"Given the same tools, opportunities and platforms, the average African child can outperform and outclass his western counterparts.
"If only African governments and some private sector players can harness the native intelligence and creative mind of the African child, there would be less poverty on the continent."
