Makurdi is the state capital of Benue. The standard of living here is low compared to other states in the country. Benue is called the food basket of the nation because of the great agricultural produce it yields yearly. The people of Makurdi are very hospitable. The major languages spoken are Tiv and Idoma.

Good area, with nice and loving people who welcomes strangers. They also love farming and are very industrious. The name of the biggest market is modern market where almost everything is sold. Anyone visiting the city for the first time should try and visit the market. There are many churches and mosques in the city.

We have agricultural products available at a very cheap price. you will not have to spend more on buying food. Secondly, our electricity supply is averagely consistent. I will advise you come along with a backup power supply.

The people of Makurdi metropolis, Benue State, Nigeria are a handful of indigenous farmers and are extremely hospitable to foreigners. We love pork and are very good at making pork sauce. However, the downside is, the weather is unnecessarily harsh year-round. But just as everything with a disadvantage, the advantage of the hot weather is, it helps for cultivating medical marijuana.

Makurdi is one state in Nigeria which literally has a lot of potentials to tap into. Coming to the city, one should also expect a warm welcome from residents of the city, as the people are very hospitable. One should also know that the weather here is very hot, so be prepared.

It is pleasant to stay, good for business and free of violence. The weather good. People come from far near for vacation. The question is who can dispute the tenacity of youths in the city to bring new ideas. No man is idle. Children at the age of two are schooling. This is marvellous in my eyes.
