About the city of Ibadan
The city of Ibadan is the capital and most populous city of Oyo State, Nigeria. Ibadan has a population of over 3 million inhabitants, the third most populous city in Nigeria after Lagos and Kano. The word “Ibadan” is derived from the phrase “Eba Odan” that means ‘between the forest and plains’. Ibadan was founded by bands of Yoruba renegades after the collapse of the Yoruba Oyo Empire at the end of the 18th century.
The area became a British Protectorate in 1893, the British developed their new colony to facilitate their commercial activities in the area, and Ibadan shortly grew into the major trading centre that it is today. From 1946, Ibadan grew began serving as the administrative centre for the whole of Southern Nigeria. From 1991 to date it serves as the capital of present Oyo State.
Ibadan has a tropical wet and dry climate with a lengthy wet season and relatively constant temperatures during the year. Ibadan inhabitants are known for their hospitality and receptiveness. They would throw open arms to visitors, house them, feed them and even tell them about their culture and traditions. The city’s economy depends mostly on agriculture, commerce, handicrafts, manufacturing, and service industries.

Ibadan has an extensive network of minibuses, buses and motorcycle taxis that are cheap and available 24/7. Ibadan is a metropolis with several buildings, constructed for administrative use during the colonial era. One of such buildings is the Mapo Hall that was built in colonial architectural fashion, and that boasts of a mini-museum with various relics of the colonial era. The National Museum of unity serves as home to many priceless historical relics and artefacts that celebrate the rich historical culture of the Nigerian people.

The city has six top-rated parks that serve tourists and visitors as relaxation and recreational ground. Another hallmark of the city is its City Mall which is a shopping mall that boasts of various fashion stores, restaurant and food courts, a cinema, grocery outlets and entertainment centres.  The Dugbe district is one of the commercial nerve centres of Ibadan. This is where many banks have one or more branches. Also at Dugbe is the Cocoa House, Nigeria’s first skyscraper.
In the sports domain, Ibadan has golf courses and three standard Nigerian stadia, one of which is the 25,000 seating capacity, Obafemi Awolowo Stadium. For entertainment and enlightenment purposes, the city still maintains the Western Nigeria Television, also known as WNTV (the first television service station launched in Nigeria and Africa) and many radio stations. Finally, the city Ogbomosho possesses several health centres that are well-equipped and staffed by professional medics to cater to the sick population.
