@ThingsEbi commented: The sad thing is that the guy was given the scholarship to study at a non-science-related university, Appiah Minka, instead of KNUST.

@Papayaro6 commented: Very great innovation…where I have a problem is the language…A local language would have made it solid…very great…as he moves on, he should try multi-language in it. Kudos to him.
