About Mustapha Gajibo
Young businessman Mustapha Abubakar Gajibo has a talent for modern technology. The genius from Kanuri, who is determined to show off his technological prowess, has pushed ahead by creating electric cars.
According to the interview he did with Dailytrust. In 2012 Mustapha Gajibo get admission to the University of Maiduguri, but there was much drama before he was able to enroll in his desired course.
He was initially offered General Agricultural Science, but he avoided the course since he had a passion for technical drawings and innovation ever since he was in high school.
His first choice, Electrical Engineering, was not made available to him. Fortunately, he was able to alter his direction.
Mechanical Engineering was the only department that was willing to accept him, and here is where he continued until his third year because he was so passionate about renewable energy, innovation, and technical creativity.
Furthermore, he became quite interested in electrical problem-solving, but this frequently caused him to run into difficulties.
Mustapha skipped classes, tests, and exams, which had a significant negative impact on his academic progress.
He remained passionate about renewable energy, nevertheless, to the point where he chose to fully commit to a program in it when he reached the 300-level.
Afterward, he came up with the notion of starting a registered firm as an entrepreneur after giving up his schooling for it.
How He Started The Business
He registered the business in 2014 but faced some early difficulties that he later resolved.
Moving forward, he said It was an extremely difficult choice. In fact, he was informed it was wild by some of his closest friends.
Due to the fact that he came from a household where everyone attended school, his parents were first upset as well.
A lot of people also cautioned him about his error. Even the department’s leader informed him He was on the wrong track.
However, he was working on a project to power the e-library at the Federal University of Technology in Owerri at the time.
The result was that his family put up a fight against it. Yet when he saw the zeal in him, his father always supported what he was doing.
Definitely, he thought he could make it. He, therefore, didn’t feel bad and obviously was optimistic.
However, he has decided to return to school recently. He had enrolled in the National Open University, Maiduguri Study Centre so he can have enough time to research and do other things.
Furthermore, Mustapha Gajibo claimed they did not get any financial help from anybody. They started investing in the company themselves, right from inception.
When they started installing inverters, solar streetlights, powered boreholes, and other things, they made a lot of sacrifices.
When profits started coming in, the company didn’t spend them.
Instead, they reinvested immediately. That was how they were able to sustain it to the level they were today.
