You are the one being economical with the truth or maybe you are just ignorant like others

I said ogun has four international stadium, am i wrong?
I said ogun has the highest number of public tertiary institutions, am i wrong?
I said ogun has the highest number of private tertiary institutions, am i also wrong with that?

Please i only entertain reasonable arguments

You said the industries in ogun doesn't produce for ogun alone, did i tell you the industries in ogun state should produce for only ogun state?
The fact that they are in ogun State is what am talking about

And what is the rubbish you people have been saying that mowe, ibafo are lagos extensions

Are you guys ignorant or what.

The question i will ask you is that if really mowe, ibafo are ogun state towns. ?

It's not my fault that anambra is far from lagos.

You should read the factors that leads to localization of industries and tell me the benefits of localization of industries to the host community , maybe then you will understand why I said those areas are urban areas.

The fact is most of you don't know the benefit of locating industries in some areas to the host community.

Besides I don't understand why abia is before oyo state.. Even enugu is not even there

Brother the op said urbanized area . That means states with more open areas not the most developed. And I don't know why you keep on mentioning Oyo here o, I'm currently serving in Oyo town in short in the alaafins local government and I can tell you Oyo state is urbanized but not like anambra. Believe me bro cause I have been to the two states and I'm sure u have been no where near the east.

thank God that I have visited most of this state. In term of urbanisation you can not compare Abia to OYO state and kaduna as he said. After umuhia and aba tell me more of what relate to urban development in abia? In oyo state after ibadan, there is ogbomoso, Oyo, iseyin, saki and the likes of egbeda. In kaduna you still have. Saria, kanfansha,sango kataf and others
Bro egbeda is still part of Ibadan and htf would you mention iseyin.

A very Honest Submission.

In My Opinion,

1- Lagos
2/3- Ogun
2/3- F.C.T
4 - Oyo
5 - Rivers
6 - Anambra
7 - Osun
8 - Delta
9 - Akwa Ibom
10 - Kaduna

In general SE states tend to be denser settled that Western states, but is mostly comprised of village type settlement, but Western states are much more urbanized. with bigger urban centres acting as Urban nodes.
On overall population SW states seem to have an edge and more populated on average, especially since Ogun, Lagos and Oyo have all zoomed off since the last population census.

Three notoriously popular One city states in the South are Edo (benin), Imo (Owerri) and Cross River (Calabar) ---- lol
In the North- Kano is notorious for being another one city state.

Bro if you go the the commercial part of Ibadan eg like dugbe u will be marveled by the number of Igbo people u see there. I once went to buy charger at queens cinema I spoke Igbo till I left the whole of dugbe.
What I'm trying to say I that igbos travel, when you go to the north or west you see a large population of Igbo that's constitute not a minor but a major fraction of the population sw u mentioned.

Igbos need to develop their land. No place in Igbo land is reckoned with up to Ogbomosho not to talk of Ibadan! That is not good enough at all!. As Igbos are in SW, there are also Hausas. They are at par everywhere. Their difference wont be much and there are places in the SW, rural areas that have groups like Ebira and Urhobo more than Igbos or Hausas.

Meanwhile there are Yorubas in Igbo land as well. A place like PH has Yoruba thesame way Lagos have Igbos. Then move out of Nigeria to Ghana, Cote dIvoire etc you find more Yorubas than Igbos. So, everybody travels. Infact the average Ejigbo person speaks French fluently because of travel, Ogbomosho people too speak too a large extent, they also speak Hausa because of travel. So when you are talking of travel, Igbos are behind Yorubas. You need to realise this. Is there any town of Igbos where everybody speak French? As in everybody?

i agree with you bro. I live in iwo-road which is not far from egbeda. Egbeda should be one of the largest local governent in oyo state becos it extend away from ibadan. I guess part of it forms boundary with osun state.

Onitsha main market attract millions of people on daily bases...

Nnewi also attract millions of people daily..

Then Awka been state capital will always welcome people on daily bases...

Bro tell this to someone who hasn't been to Oyo. Yorubas don't travel you and I know that. The languages the speak is because the share border with francophone countries eg ominigbo village in ibarapa east where more than 99% of them speak French.
Also kwara states shares boundary with Niger state and Ogbomosho is close to illorin.
