A Nigerian named Timothy Addigi Terfa is set to launch a Nigerian-built tractor. "I designed & built this tractor, which is 100% Nigerian, with a team of skilled individuals" said the UK-trained engineer.
The tractor is designed with different attachments to cover a variety of farm jobs. He named the tractor Ijodo, meaning labour in the Tiv language. Some of the tractors have been sold, but Terfa is looking for more investment. The engineer also wants to inspire others.
"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."
