Iluromi Emmanuel, a teacher at Federal Science College in Orozo, Abuja, was awarded N3 million for winning the 2022 Innovation Challenge, thanks to his development of a technology that tracks fuel consumption in vehicles.

At the 2022 Innovation Challenge award ceremony in Abuja, Dr. Folashade Yemi-Esan, Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, announced the prize amounts for the winner, first runner-up, and second runner-up: N3 million, N1.75 million, and N1 million, respectively.

Dr. Yemi-Esan encouraged other civil servants to embrace creativity and prepare for the next edition of the competition, focusing on innovation rather than rivalry.

Iluromi Emmanuel, the winner, explained that his technology can monitor fuel levels during driving and send the results via SMS. He said, “If for any reason you have to send your driver to buy fuel, just ping the app before he leaves, and then ping it when he returns; you will be able to monitor his fuel usage.”

Senator Ibrahim Shekarau, former Governor of Kano State and Chairman of the Senate Committee on Establishment and Public Service, urged other government agencies to adopt the practice of rewarding outstanding employees, as it will inspire them to perform even better.

The 2022 Innovation Challenge was organized by the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, in collaboration with Galaxy Backbone Limited.
