Sulaiman Famro left his native Nigeria in the 1970s to become an engineer. Now in his 60s, he claims his invention could save the country billions.
“No doubt, Nigeria is blessed with huge human and natural resources, but without the necessary technological expertise and political will to harness the vast resources, these blessings cannot be converted to assets,” Famro told The Nation.
The Farmking, as the invention is named, is a “one-stop-shop” type of device that will allow farmers to process crops without losing the valuable starches that aren’t preserved when traditional farming methods are used.
