A technical university dropout, Frank Nyarko, has invented a sweeping bicycle to contribute to dealing with the sanitation problem in the country.
He dropped out of school due to financial difficulties but decided not to allow that to kill his talent.
It has been estimated that Ghana loses an amount of $290 million, representing 1.6 per cent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) annually, due to poor sanitation. This, has been blamed on the lack of proper planning and also inadequate resources.
But Frank believed that his innovation will deal with the challenge facing the country.
“I wanted to contribute to how things can be done quickly,” he told TV3 news in an interview.
He revealed that funds to purchase the material was a challenge that he faced, as well as discouragement from family and friends.
“They told me what I was trying to do what was not going to work,” he said.
