Ijodo Tractor
UK-trained Nigerian engineer Timothy Addigi Terfa is getting ready to launch a Nigerian-built tractor named  Ijodo, which means 'labour' in the Tiv language.

Timothy Terfa said: “I designed and built this tractor, which is 100% Nigerian, with a team of skilled individuals.”

The tractor is designed with different attachments to cover a variety of farm jobs. For many, agriculture is still manual in Nigeria because of the high cost of farm machinery.

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.”

It is not clear how much this tractor will cost when it goes on the market. (BBC)
