Man builds motorbikes that run on fuel using scrap materials
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a talented man had built motorbikes that run on fuel from scrap materials.
At 38, Sumaila has defeated impediments and is building bicycles and motorbikes propelled by two-stroke engines that use oil mixed with gasoline or petrol.
He uses scrap metals in moulding the bikes. Sumaila told a trusted Ghanaian news media, Briefly News that he wants to expand the business to train more people in the craft because he has a quest to transfer his talent to others.
Sumaila, a father of three, further mentioned that this passion drives him towards achieving his goals.
"I need advanced tools to work. Also, I need an investor to finance the expansion of the business because I need a workshop to train people.
"I just love the work, and I want to use my talent to help other people, particularly people living with disabilities."
