The Niger Delta is synonymous with mostly two things – Crude Oil and Youth restiveness but a young man from Brass LG in Bayelsa state, is changing that perception and it can get better if only he gets all the necessary support.
Ifiemi Felagha, 36, built a light plane in the comfort of his homestead. The young man who works with an oil servicing firm, spent his leisure time over the past 8 years to bring his dream project – a light plane – to fruition which he named ‘Destiny.’
According to Felagha’s parents, they noticed from his childhood that he loved putting different things together although he achieved his latest feat even without a tertiary education.
The aircraft is however yet to take-off because Ifiemi is not a trained Pilot. He is now consulting with aviation experts but for now, he keeps moving the aircraft on his make-shift runway.
