Career / How To Produce Tomato Paste And Tomato Paste Market In Nigeria by MrAJQ(m): 12:46am On Mar 19
Tomato market in Nigeria and the process of preserving it into tomato paste

Nigeria is the 16th country on the global tomato production scale. Entrepreneurs earn millions on tomatoes! You can become one of them! Read this tomato production guide and find the most successful state to start your business in Nigeria!

Tomato products are cultivated in most states in Nigeria. There are even leaders in tomato production industry! It includes states like:

– Kano
– Taraba
– Gombe
– Bauchi
– Kaduna
– Sokoto
– Zamfara
– Katsina
– Jigawa
All these states produce about 80% of all tomatoes in the country. Kano is the most successful region in this area. Nigeria also provides about 2% of total world tomatoes production. Still, the country does not get about 45 percent of the tomatoes due to the poor food supply chain.

Every year Nigeria loses about 750 thousand tons of tomatoes due to the bad food supply chain. It costs millions of Naira. It also leads to the lack of tomatoes in the country. Only in 2009, the Federal Government had to buy tomato paste worth about 16 billion Naira to support the inner demand of the country.

The majority of tomatoes grow in the northern part of the country. They grow in the temperature range between 25 and 34 degree Celsius. Tomatoes are also very sensible to humidity and rain. The highest yield of tomatoes is provided by states like Jigawa, Delta, Kwara, Oyo, Borno, Bauchi, and Plateau. The planting tomato season in these areas is from August to September.

The highest yield of tomato in the history of Nigeria was recorded in 2010. The overall value of this highest yield was $687, 610, 000. Still, it couldn`t satisfy Nigerians. The national demand for fresh tomatoes in Nigeria is about 2-3 million tons every year. Due to the poor production chain, Nigerians waste from 750 000 to 1, 350, 000 tons of tomatoes.

How can you help with these tomato wastes? Some of us do not ask these questions but just take a chance. Consider the following two examples for the profitability of tomato production in Nigeria!




Gas cooker, stove or any source of heat

Pick out the unripe and rotten tomatoes
Wash your tomatoes
Chop tomatoes into quarters.
Grind the tomatoes using blender or grinding machine and ensure you do not add water while grinding, if necessary add very little.
Transfer the grinded tomatoes into your pot and parboil it for 10-15 minutes depending on the quantity of the tomatoes you’re using.
After parboiling, let it cool down, after cooling down sieve the tomatoes to remove excess water, then transfer it into bottlesand cover it.
Bottles should submersed in water bath when sterilizing
Transfer these bottles into larger pot, add little water to the pot and boil for 25-20 minutes.
After heating, remove your bottles from the pot and keep
Your tomatoes paste is ready and can stand for a year if not opened

Business / Production Of Powdered Detergent At Commercial Scale by MrAJQ(m): 5:43pm On Dec 02, 2020

Are you looking for a business to start with little money? Here is how to produce powdered detergent for commercial purpose.

Definition: Detergent is non-soap cleaning agent that is used to remove dirt in cloths, surfaces, and mostly especially a synthetic surfactant. There are two forms of detergents: Powdered detergents and liquid detergent. Both types of detergent make use of the some chemicals; but the difference lies in the fact that one is oil based while the other is water based.

There are several materials that are used for making detergent which includes;

Caustic soda
Light soda ash
Palm kernel oil
Sodium sulphate
Hydrogen perioxide


Hydrogen peroxide: acts as catalyst in facilitating the rate of the reaction by transforming the mixture into powder

Ammonia solution: its work synergistically with hydrogen peroxide in transforming the mixture into powder

Sulphonic acid solution: act as a forming agent and as an anti-aging agent for the skin.

Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Kaduna State Government 2019 Recruitment Into Public Service. How To Apply by MrAJQ(m): 12:10am On Mar 04, 2020
The core responsibility of the civil service is to recruit for all MDAs especially officers between level 7 - 17. Therefore, hoping that the MDAs will also invite applicants could be erroneous unless you applied with certificate below HND. Learn about the functions of kaduna state core civil service and clear your doubt.

You guys analysis is quite funny, it easy for the state government to tell you that you can't proceed with the application but rather they sent an email to you that will contact you soon. Only that applied for the core civil service commission were invited.

Remember they advertised all these selected ministries Agency and Department.

There is a rumor ongoing eventhough I personally don't believe it.
I was told the reason why we are yet to be invited for interview is because there is no vacancies at the various MDA's we selected.
However we will be call upon as soon as there is vacancies in our chosen MDA's.
So for now we wait.

Well, I still have mine to attend, bad news shouldn't kill the ginger and increase the tension.

Lets just wait for the mails to decide kawai...
Please don't listen to him, he saying what he doesn't know, after the interview if you're successful then you've been employed.

He is relating it primary school recruitment, which only involved paper test, interview and employment letter, during the employment stage you're only required to write an application letter.

So, please ignore his false message. Imagine saying the interview is nothing! Hope you understand that he doesn't what he was saying. I wish you the best

Properties / Re: Kaduna Residents Cry Out Over Government's Plan To Demolish 300 Houses by MrAJQ(m): 3:45pm On Nov 25, 2019
Seriously my heart goes to the people of southern kaduna with the way this guy carries alot of anti-southern kaduna policies with impunity. The height was when he vehemently selected a moslem as his deputy for the first time in the history of a democratic kaduna, moslem moslem ticket. To spit on the southern kaduna populace face, he said he selected the moslem deputy because he knows even if he select the pope as his deputy he will not get their support.....what an insult. Unfortunately he have all the federal backing wit PMB in-charge.
Kamanzo and surrounding areas are mostly well planned, the construction of a grade A road by the late kaduna governor Yakowa to cushion the stress and enhance development within the mostly southern kaduna dominated areas made the whole area very attractive with its layout. Now this is where this governor got it wrong. Kaduna state is not so congested the it lack land resources, infact there are vast lands begging for development. WHY not do any project you supposedly want to undertake on this available land??

Do you how many houses he demolishes and how many he tried to demolish in Northern Kaduna?

Very shameful and disgraceful of the institution to have publicly call out young men/women for a not so noble act yet you have a President who is in a certificate battle.

If you read and it is not entering your ogbon(brain), relax, take a break and pray. Ask God for clarity and understanding. You will be amazed the next time you open your books. It has worked for me for decades.

Friends, the principles to clear cut understanding and retention begins with a regular exercising of the brain. The brain isn’t a muscle, but it behaves like one. The more you use it, the more it grows. So read books, meditate on them and your brain will open up to endless possibilities.


Have you said anything meaningful? If you stop hating Buhari will you die?
