A Nigerian engineer who trained in the United Kingdom has returned home for exploits as he designs a tractor to boost agricultural practices in Nigeria.
The locally-made tractor
Timothy Addigi Terfa is getting ready to launch a Nigerian-built tractor, BBC reports.
Terfa said: “I designed and built this tractor, which is 100% Nigerian, with a team of skilled individuals.”
He has called the tractor Ijodo, meaning labour in the Tiv language.
The tractor is designed with different attachments to cover a variety of farm jobs. Some Ijodo tractors have been sold, but Terfa is looking for more investment.
He says: “My greatest desire is that someone out there will be encouraged and motivated to do something with the ideas they have to make Nigeria better.”
