Terfa Timothy Addigi said the tractor which has been tested is 100% designed and built in Nigeria. “I designed and built this tractor 100% in Nigeria with a team of skilled individuals; 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.”






Ijodo means labour in his local Tiv language. The tractor he said has multiple attachable implements for land preparation, cultivation, crop processing and transportation of harvest within the farm. Agriculture is still manual in Nigeria because of high cost of modern mechanized implements
