A 27-year-old Nigerian systems engineer has won the Royal Academy of Engineering Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation. This is another good news for Nigeria.
Godwin Benson, a graduate of University of Lagos, who designed Tuteria, an online platform that links students to qualified tutors in their area and within their budget.
Users find the skill they want to learn on an app on their phone, set their budget, and wait to be connected to the nearest tutor. Benson wins £25,000.
At the awards ceremony in Nairobi, Kenya on 23 May 2017, the four finalists delivered presentations, before Africa Prize judges and a live audience voted for the most promising engineering innovation.
Benson developed the platform based on the experiences he had as a young tutor. An important part of the service is that both students and teachers are thoroughly vetted before being allowed to use the platform.
