The first tractor designed and built in Nigeria - BBC World
A shortage of mechanical equipment in Nigeria means that many farmers are obliged to work the land by hand. Now, one engineer in central Benue State has come up with a solution - a tractor that's 100% designed and built in Nigeria. Timothy Addigi Terfa has called his tractor 'Ijodo' which means 'labour' in his native Tiv language. Addigi explained the idea to Newsday.
