NCERD blazes the trail on renewable & non-renewable energy

The importance of energy for sustainable development in Nigeria cannot be overemphasized. Having realized this, the Federal Government in 1980, established the National Centre for Energy Research and Development (NCERD) at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. Over the years, the centre has been setting pace in the development of different scientific and technological equipment. Recently, the centre developed Solar Cooker, Solar water heater, solar dryer, and domestic Bio- gas digester among others.

... Nigeria’s Thomas Edison

At my early stage, I was patronizing local welders on the street, to fabricate whatever I want to build. It was from this, that I built my workshop and started welding iron materials by myself.
My name initially from my parents was Usman Abubakar but my God’s given scientific ingenuity made people to nickname me Mujaddadi meaning rebirth or renew because of the way renew or convert wasted materials to scientific use. For example, I can use waste transformer materials to construct another transformer or to construct other electrical gadgets like battery charger; inverter; stabilizer; step up or step down transformer etc.” he said.
