UK-trained Nigerian engineer Timothy Addigi Terfa is getting ready to launch a Nigerian-built tractor.
Mr 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 the engineer is looking for more investment.
Mr Terfa 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.”
