Man Invented Water-Cooking Stove Amidst Gas Price

Meanwhile, another Nigerian man named Hadi Usman, who invented a water-cooking stove in response to the country’s rising cooking gas prices, has pleaded with the federal government to support his project.

Usman, a 67-year-old talented man from the Jekadafari area of Gombe State, is said to have been responsible for a pile of uncommon and remarkable inventions in the past.

He is known for putting together a radio transmitter and running a community radio station.

The 67-year-old man wants the federal government to assist him in mass-producing his water-powered cooking stove in order to reduce the adverse effects that the rising price of cooking gas has on Nigerians.

“I wish relevant institutions and bodies can support towards patenting the project for mass production to at least help the without buying kerosene or gas to cook their food by using water,” Hadi stated
