The Zaki Biam international market is probably the biggest yam market in the world. It accounts for sales of possibly 70% of yams cultivated in the country. Over 200 trucks loading 2 million tubers of yams weekly. . However the market has had very little storage capacity and its infrastructural facilities are way behind its capacity and the size of commerce that goes on there daily. It was therefore my singular honour earlier today, to commission virtually a 200,000 CAPACITY YAM STORAGE FACILITY AT ZAKI BIAM, Benue State, with additional features such as re-construction of 660 units of stalls/sheds, construction of a Police/ Market Administrative Building and the construction of 8 units of Public Toilets. . There is also the provision of a Solar-Powered Borehole with an overhead tank and the construction of internal roads with drainage and the installation of Solar Street lights.
