“Africa is usually is the target place to sell these vehicles, so I feel there’s a big market for it here.”

He said while in school he found it difficult to comprehend the theoretical aspect of his courses but did well in his practical classes.

“We have a lot of hand skilled individuals in Nigeria and they are lying wasted if you would allow me to say it, it is like the theoretical aspect is what is valued more and I am poor at the theoretical so I saw it as a challenge why don’t I do something practically-inclined and will also be platform for others to put their mind and we’ll make a living out of it,” Mallo said.

The Plateau State-born engineer said he was inspired to create the sports car because Nigeria and Africa at large have all the required resources and raw materials needed.

He said instead of victims getting crushed while in an accident, the car would break into pieces and the victims are protected with airbags. The car manufacturer said the car has four radiators for Nigeria’s temperature and rugged for the country’s road.
Mallo said the car is not ready for purchase yet as it is more like research but will be ready for commercialisation in two years.
