In his words while speaking with Espact he said he didn’t know the post would attract people’s attention but he made the post out of the satisfaction he got after the work was done because he was skeptical about allowing Emmanuel handle his generator but his level of confidence made him reconsider.

Emmanuel shared with Espact how excited he was when he was told about his story going viral. He said he had been undergoing his mechanical training at JohnGbade Mechanic workshop for the past 2 years and he had a part of his primary education in Ondo State before coming down to Lagos where his uncle enrolled him for mechanical skill acquisition with Mr Gbade.

In response to Espact’s question of what he wants from everyone reaching out to him, Emmanuel said he would love to be enrolled in school to continue his education as long as it doesn’t disturb his mechanical skill acquisition as he would like to be a well known mechanical engineer with a reputable workshop where he can also train talents just like his Boss, Mr John Gbade.
