design4u .



                                      HUMAN RESOURCES
Ibadan had been the centre of administration of the old Western Region since the days of the British colonial rule. Before the dissolution of the Western Region, Nigeria, Ibadan and its environs were the home of the most sophisticated and liberal scientific and cultural community on the continent of Africa, as personified by the immortalized Ibadan School of historiography.

                                   NATURAL RESOURCES
There is abundance of clay, kaolin and aquamarine in its environs, and there are several cattle ranches, a dairy farm as well as a commercial abattoir in Ibadan, the city is a major centre for trade in cassava, cocoa, cotton, timber, rubber, and palm oil. The city is naturally drained by four rivers with many tributaries: Ona River in the North and West; Ogbere River towards the East; Ogunpa River flowing through the city and Kudeti River in the Central part of the metropolis. Ogunpa River, a third-order stream with a channel length of 12.76 km and a catchment area of 54.92 km2. Ibadan has a tropical wet and dry climate (Köppen climate classification Aw), with a lengthy wet season and relatively constant temperatures throughout the course of the year.

                                  CAPITAL RESOURCES
The administrative and commercial importance of Ibadan has resulted in land being a key investment, an asset and a status symbol for the population. The city ranges in elevation from 150 m in the valley area, to 275 m above sea level on the major north-south ridge which crosses the central part of the city. The city's total area is 1,190 sq mi (3,080 km2). The main industries in the area include the processing of agricultural products; Tobacco processing and Cigarette (Manufacture); flour-milling, leather-working and furniture-making. Ibadan has an airport, Ibadan Airport, and is served by the Ibadan railway station on the main railway line from Lagos to Kano. The first motorable road in Nigeria was constructed from Ibadan to Oyo in 1906. In-town transport comes in a variety of forms. Modes of transport include, taxis and personal cars. In the 1980s, the Ibadan-Lagos expressway generated the greatest urban sprawl.
