I served in Benue state of Nigeria, the food basket of nigeria. benue state is the seventh biggest state in nigeria. it shared boundaries with abuja, kogi, nasarawa, taraba and enugu. the major tribes in benue are the TIVs and the IDOMAs. the capiatl of benue is makurdi while the traditional headquarter of the TIVs who are the dominant tribe is gboko, the hometown of the popular football club BCC LIONS OF GBOKO.
truely benue is the food basket of the nation. their mangoes are as big as human head and sold for about 6pieces for ten naira, no exagerations because nobody buys. each house has either a mango tree or a orange tree in front. their orange is as big as grapefruit and sold as almost free. their major work is farming, farming and farming. their hoe is very big and i bet you most of you can not raise the hoe up 20 times to make ridges and heaps. benue people eat alot of pounded yam. i doubt if the ondo people eat as much pounded yam as the benue. imagine you enter a canteen to buy food and the only food you can see to buy is pounded yam.
food is almost sold free in benue. one of my corper friends was given a hundred tubers of yam free of charge just because he agreed to serve with a school in the village. the temperature of makurdi is very high. it is as if the sun is moved down a bit. other areas are not as hot as makurdi. makurdi is also expensive.
benue babes are very beautiful. i will continue from here the next time.
