Nigeria’s Adebayo Alonge just made Africa proud. We say: Congratulations to Adebayo Alonge who won the Deep Tech Global Challenge with a grand price of over €100,000 amidst fierce competition for his Portable Drug Authenticator used to tackle counterfeit drugs. He is the first African to win the competition.
He was also a victim of counterfeit drug and one wonders what would have become of him if the young man hadn’t survived such harsh circumstance.
Counterfeit drugs are eating deep into the system and needs to be eradicated as youths seem to keep getting addicted to them these days.
