Funmi Ayinke

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of FunmiAyinke Nigeria Limited (FNL), Engineer Dr. Funmilayo Ayinke Waheed-Adekojo has tasked Nigerian engineers to be innovative in order to provide solutions to some problems faced in the country.

She made this clarion call to engineers during an event where she lectured professionals in the industry recently.

When asked about the possibility of electric vehicles usage considering the electricity issues faced in Nigeria, Engineer Funmi Ayinke explained that the government will not solve everything but individually, Engineers can create solutions to the problem by being innovative.

She shared with the audience how she came up with an innovative idea some time ago using corn sticks while encouraging engineers that they can also be solutions to problems.

She cited renewable energy as a good aspect. Engineers can create solutions for the electricity problems in the country instead of waiting for the government to do everything for its citizens.

‘’I will tell you this is a general problem but there is something I want to challenge you as an engineer to do. There’s something we call renewable energy and I have done it personally when I used corn sticks and briquettes. Another person also came up with Solar panel.

‘’I think as an engineer that you are, you should not be thinking generally about how Nigeria will solve that problem, we should be thinking of how as an individual you can have a charging point, developing electricity in your own way that when they come to you, they still pay you to charge their vehicles; that is entrepreneurial mind.’’

Funmi Ayinke is a celebrity engineer who has handled several projects across the country. Though her client base is not made public, it’s been confirmed that she has worked with bigwigs in every sector in the country ranging from politics to academics.
