“I want to be a robotics engineer, so that I can be producing robots that can be used in addressing security challenges bedevilling the country.

“I thank my father for encouraging me towards success of the project.

“Now, I want to get a scholarship to further my education abroad to fulfill my dream of becoming a robotics engineer,” he said.

Auwal-Barde further said that his prowess in robotics engineering attracted a delegation from the National Center for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (NCAIR), to visit him.

“I have been giving him words of encouragement and telling him that he will become a robotics engineer in future.

And whenever our electricity or electronics had faults, he was the one to repair them,” he said.

Auwal-Barde explained that he graduated from Government Secondary School (GSS), Sabuwar-Kofa, Kano, in 2021, and obtained seven credits in science subjects in the West African Examination Council (WAEC).

He further called on the government to support his son with a scholarship to study robotics engineering abroad.
