Visit Tor Donga, the Benue Market where Rice, Yam & Groundnut are Cheap

Benue is known as the food basket of the nation for a reason. With fertile lands and favourable climate, the area is never lacking in food.

Even with the insecurity problems causes by Fulani herdsmen, the people still risk their lives to farm.

And with Governor Samuel Ortom who has proven to be the state’s worst governor, especially in the area of non-payment of salaries and little to no development of capital projects during his 8 year term as the state’s chief executive, life has never being harder for the ordinary Benue man.

The Governor has at times told his people to rise up and defend themselves, with the Federal Government’s funds for security vote going into his private businesses.But in Tor Donga, a satellite town located in Katsina-Ala Local Government Area of the State, they hold weekly markets where they sell their farm produces, mostly at a very affordable rates.Benue yams are known for their superior quality, something yams from other parts of Nigeria can’t boast of.
