Ekomobong Finbarr has successfully produced and defended this solar powered tricycle (Keke) as his first degree project in partial fulfillment for the award of a degree in Electrical Engineering at Federal University of Technology, (FUTO), Owerri.
It took him just few weeks to produce the tricycle. The tricycle does not have an engine but its powered by a battery and solar energy. When test driven by his lecturers and Head of Department, Mr. Damian Dike, it was discovered that the tricycle goes 11km without blinking. Lecturers of FUTO who were completely stunned that he could put this together said they are proud of the achievement of Ekomobong.
Below, Mr. Damian Dike and his colleague, Dr. Achumba enjoyed the first cruise of the Keke.
