Hassan Yohanna Umar, an Orphan innovating with Electronics in Bauchi [THE INTERVIEW]

Necessity they say is the mother of all invention but in the case of want, Hassan Yohanna Umar plays around with electronics using local materials and innovations all by himself at the historic birth town of Nigeria’s first and foremost Prime Minister, Lt. Sir Abubakar Tafewa Balewa i.e Tafawa Balewa Town.

 

Hassan Y. Umar is an orphan that has completed National Diploma in Electrical/Electronics Engineering at the State-owned polytechnic ATAP Bauchi. He is a ‘Cult Hero’ among his peers for his creativity and innovative mindsets but lacks the financial supports to move his skills into something substantial for himself and his immediate community.

Beehive Gossips on her usual grass-root journalism had a little chat with talented Hassan Yohanna Umar as transcripted below…

I know I can’t do it alone, therefore, I need potential investors and the Government, I am calling on the ever working  Executive Governor of Bauchi State Sen. Bala Muhammed to come to my aid.
