The city is notorious with selling plaintain chips, bush meat, pure water, fruits and ewedu soup. Their gals are not usually clean, I mean dirty bras-s. No five star hotels.

Please don't compare Oshogbo to Ibadan any time. Ibadan might be bigger and more industrious, but she's too dirty and rough. I'm always discouraged anytime I'm going to Oshogbo from Lagos
But I think this their present governor is doing better, let's wait and see how it's going to be in 2015

THE GOOD
Yea. Osogbo is a peaceful city, no doubt.
The improvement in the power sector had little or no impact here cuz there has always been upto 18hrs a day power supply. Infact, people dnt shout UP NEPA! here unlike other places I've been to. They're use to short period light out.
The roads are good even inside remote villages.
The transportation fare here is very cheap. Imagine bike will take u same place a bus will take u wit 50bucks for the same price. If its in Enugu, for same distance, bus will be 70/80bucks while the bike price won't be less than 150bucks
THE BAD AND THE UGLY
If you want to make real cash as a graduate, 4get Osogbo unless u go for bank job.
In housing, My village has more beautiful structures than Osogbo. Yes! We have mud houses here in the capital city with loads of ancient buildings.
Even in the capital city, most of'em dnt understand English, even teachers. Imagine a yoruba corper in my school was asked to teach the students English language with yoruba. Too bad.
The road needs expansion. Esp Kola balogun, Igbono, Oja oba, Isare aro, Station road and their likes.
When people talk abt hotel in Osogbo it amazes me. Go to Enugu state or Imo state then u will knw what it means with a state having big and numerous hotels.
Some peopke are talkin abt ACN, what has Aregbe done? Is it the O'yes that he pays 10k every mnth for sweeping the roads, teaching, and other things? He killed the Education sector with his no money to school order. No PTA, No WAEC fees, no extra moral lessons. Thus the teachers leaves teaching for o'yes and corpers. The students are so dumb! Imagine 38 students failed out of 85, with 22 promoted on trial.
Osogbo or Osun is really far beyound development, imagine almighty DIAMOND & GTBANK has only but one one branch in gbongan road here in Osogbo.
Though peaceful, but am always prayin while in bank cuz bank robbery is a norm here with sporadic shooting.
I can go on and on but let me stop here.

this is part of the reason why Nigeria will never progress. We celebrate mediocrity. Someone has taken pictures of average areas in the state which he feels are good enough for the camera and then post them and here you are hailing. The choice of places to photograph was obviously selective. Even at that the pictures do not show that Oshogbo is developed enough, contrary to what he is trying to portray smiley smiley smiley

Is the bold an ACN thing? I heard Ajimobi was doing the same in Ibadan. They find reasons(maybe genuine) to sack existing and therefore more experienced teachers and then replace them with the O'yes people. the effect of that is baffling.
Re: Pictures Of Oshogbo, Osun State by PaulJohn1: 7:28pm On Sep 01, 2012
@Nairastake
You're correct about some of the things you highlighted.
You're comparing Oshogbo to some other cities in Nigeria, isn't that unfair? The state was cropped out of Oyo 1991. And I'll tell you that states created that same year or after are not many that beat Osun, not talking of oil producing states. So please spare the state.

I know most of you guys that blame Aregbe and criticizes most of his moves, isn't it because he didn't give people space to chop money any how? cheesy my bro get used to him. I'm sure you're one of those peeps who praises the former guy(Oyinlola), because he spends lavishly grin
