The perception Nigerians have about the city and people from Ibadan is bad and quite wrong. The city and people have been repeatedly maligned. They are branded local, uncivilised and old-fashioned. This is absolutely wrong.
But, according to social norms, when you keep saying the same thing about people or a city and their way of life, such statements, whether they are true or not become acceptable.
In line with this, we discuss the magnificence, beauty, and culture of the city called Ibadan to help dispel or disprove some of this perception.
Ibadan is the state capital of Oyo State, Nigeria. It has a population of over 3 million and arguably the largest city in West Africa. In addition to this, it is the most populous city after Lagos and Kano. In addition to this, Ibadan used to be the headquarters of politics in West Nigeria. Ibadan, unlike Lagos, is very conservative and it is a perfect place to getaway.
