A serving member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Idris Muhammed has produced an electric motorcycle called e-Scooter.
The e-Scooter, which was unveiled by Kaduna State Polytechnic, has the ability to eliminate burning fossil fuels, periodic change of engine oil, and changing of spark plugs.
Speaking on the project at the public presentation of the e-Scooter (Model CTD-1A) at the Centre for Technology Development (CTD) automobile training and repairs workshop in Kaduna, the Director of CTD, Auwal Anwar said the project was the brainchild of Muhammed, a corps member.
Before the official presentation of the e-Scooter electric vehicle, the Acting Rector of the Polytechnic, Dr Suleiman Umar, said the motorcycle, which was designed and produced by the CTD of the institution was yet another landmark incursion into the technology breakthrough of the institution.
He said the project will help in solving the much-needed alternative to conventional vehicles that use petrol with its attendant cost implications.
