Speaking on the achievement,

According to Yahaya, his organization built the house to encourage the recycling of waste materials, create jobs, and ensure a safer environment in Nigeria.

The structure has three rooms, a kitchen, and a toilet.

He explained to journalists that his workers filled the plastic bottles with sand and linked them at the neck by an intricate network of strings.

In his words; “It’s the cheapest house that everyone can construct without spending much money because the building materials are available on the streets and trash dump centres.

“It is 20 times stronger than brick walls houses and can last for over 300 years if constructed properly and carefully. It is fireproof, bulletproof, earthquake-resistant and can adapt to all kinds of climate changes, desertification and deforestation.

“It is the cheapest house to build in this generation with waste plastic bottles on the streets polluting our environment and causing more problems like flood and other disasters in the communities.”
