A man identified as Usman Dalhatu has people talking on social media after building a solar-powered cooker that has a TV.
Usman shared photos of two men cooking with the invention while the television was on. While the TV is solar-powered, the burners are powered by gas.
The same young man was recognised by the federal government in Nigeria, which finalised plans to collaborate with him after building a portable E-vent automatic ventilator and road sweeping machine.
Tweeps flooded the comment section of the post after Usman shared photos of the solar-powered cooker.
"Nigeria has enough talent and sunlight to produce solar-powered products such as cars, computers, electricity, etc. But Nigeria must Nigeria."
"What I love to see. Solving a problem that fits our culture. Is there a white paper or something? I would love to learn more about the project."
"Brilliant minds are creative and drives innovation. This is a potential from the north that need serious investment. But the only thing Arewa elites invest on is politics."
"Very impressive Usman, keep the light up, may Allah bless you."
"This is revolutionary. I love to see it!!"
"Congratulations, this is beautiful."

It took eight months of trials to make sure that the rechargeable iron could work properly, How Africa reports. The inventor, who is the director of BANZELA, said the iron can last for three hours without electricity.
The young man has realised that electricity is a problem in his country and he intends to improve the lives of his people. He said:
“Among the solutions we have provided is the rechargeable iron that allows users to iron for a period of at least three hours without having electricity in the house, which means that you can charge it, you can even travel with it, in trips, anywhere, if you need to iron if you don’t have access to electricity you can always use our iron.”
