WAZOBIA KEKE Innovator Mr Stine Chenge receives Prestigious Merit Award

The Benue State Government has given  its highest Prestigious Merit Award in the field of Science and Technology to Mr Stine Chenge who made history by launching what he calls "Wazobiakeke", the first tricycle designed, engineered and manufactured in Nigeria.

This ground breaking innovation which is aimed at addressing transport challenges of farmers was launched in July 2016 by the Executive Governor of Benue State, His Excellency Samuel Ortom who encouraged the project by ordering for 20 of the home made tricycles.

The Benue Celebrity Award which took place on 15 December 2016 was the first of its kind since 1976. The Benue state Governor represented by His Chief Press Secretary Mr Terver Akase at the occassion with Mr Hilary Bat Hills Nyikwagh (SSA to the Governor on Entertainment) said Certainly Benue is proud of this genius, and encouraged all youth and people of the state to emulate Mr Chenge.

Merry Xmas
