Nigerian man builds plane from scratch!

It took Ifiemi Felagha 8 years to build this plane with no external funding. This reminds me of Engineer Okpere who built a car using locally sourced parts. This men are just amazing and should be praised on a international level. They have so much potential that should be harvested for economic growth and even educational development in Nigeria. I hope 36 year old Ifiemi (in the video below) and  Engineer Okpere don't get pushed to the side.
God bless Nigeria .

"Unemployment or underemployment need not keep anyone from fulfilling their dreams says a young man from Brass in Bayelsa state, who in homestead has built a light plane that he hopes will fly someday soon.

36 year old Ifiemi Felagha, works with an oil servicing firm but spent all his free time in the past eight years working on living his light plane dream and he’s seen it through by building a light plane, named Destiny.
According to the parent of this young man without tertiary education, has had a knack for putting things together since his childhood.
The aircraft is however yet to take-off because Ifiemi is not a trained Pilot. He is now consulting with aviation experts but for now, he keeps moving the aircraft on his make-shift runway." - Channels TV
