This video (which is not attaching) has caught the attention of many across the world and has been the stuff of various social media productions. That is more than whatever is established about this line of business in West Africa.
It is probably the idea of two brothers quitting good jobs in the UK and deciding to go for broke. As such, they are bound to be a celebrated story once they end up putting up the first granite road network in that country.
Intervention heard experts on African development hailing it and calling it “good initiative”, with some saying “Our engineers and scientists need to become entrepreneurs.
