- A Nigerian engineer has created a 100% Nigerian-built tractor
- The invention has different attachments to cover a variety of farm jobs
- The enthusiast hopes that his creation will inspire other Nigerians to make their country better
A Nigerian engineer, who has undergone a training in the United Kingdom, has designed a tractor which he describes as a 100% Nigerian.
Timothy Addigi Terfa even gave a name to his invention -- Ijodo -- meaning labour in the Tiv language.
Mr Terfa has already sold several exemplars and ready to launch the model into production but is looking for more investment.
He said: "I designed and built this tractor, which is 100% Nigerian, with a team of skilled individuals."
The tractor is equipped with different attachments to cover a variety of farm jobs.
It can be a real helper in Nigeria, where the majority of agriculture-related jobs are done manually because of costly farm machinery.
Mr Terfa wants to inspire his compatriots: "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."
