afonja the great here, let me help you, the name Afonja is as great as the name Julius Caesar in Yoruba land so Quit it, its not derogatory to us, so thank you, we are proud Afonjas unlike people without history, maybe they were apes or savages.
That said now to the topic, i won't mince words, there is vast poverty in Oyo state more than most states in the se except Ebonyi, av being there, all of the states in the south East, but Non is as urban as Oyo state,not to even talk if Ogun state.

Waiting for u, loading slowly.


Julius Caesar never betrayed his people...

I cant accept that Anambra has more business strength than Osun. What are they producing there? What is their GDP in Anambra. You cant just say Osun, Cross river, etc have very low business strength when all indicators say GDP per capita is higher in Osun than Anambra! Your notion is wrong. I can sit here and count people employed in Ilesa who are paid up to N2 million per month, maybe 20 people at least. How many in ANAMBRA? Just dont dismiss a state like that. Osun is richer than Anambra. What is Anambra producing? What is the GDP?

Bro who is paying them the 2m monthly? Osun state or? And for you to ask the question that what is anambra producing already show you to be a Stone Age dude living in one village in ibarapa or shaki.

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
so ogun should be first in your mind?

Abagworo:
This list is faulty. Lagos position is unarguable but 2nd on that list should be Anambra. 3rd should be Imo and 4th Rivers State. When you check the population density if these States you won't help but acknowledge that fact. Oyo despite having the 3rd largest city and 9th largest city is full of empty land. I will do a bit of google earth to give a hint instead of mere assumption.

And Ekiti has a higher population density than Ogun.
Yet The former can not be said to be more urban than the latter.
Your analysis is completely faulty.

You are the deluded person always making things up not me. In Ilesa alone, there are employees of IB Plc, Olashore International School and hotels, Saro Agro sciences who are paid over 2 million a month. They have elderly expatriates who are Europeans. IB Plc and Saro are world class companies that have been written about on Reuters, Bloomberg and etc. I am not talking of state commissioners now but people in the private sector. In Ile Ife, the VC of the private university must be paid more than a million naira a month and etc. That is how you measure, dont just make wild statements.


I am not saying Anambra is not producing but what are they producing that ranks them higher than Osun or that gives them more money? That is the issue. All indicators show that Osun is richer, more urbanized and etc than Anambra at least for now.

Lagos, 6 other states control 90% of cash transactions in Nigeria – CBN

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has said that Lagos and six other states control about 90 per cent of cash transactions in the country. The other states are Rivers, Anambra, Abia, Kano, Ogun and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

CBN Deputy Governor, Operations, Mr. Tunde Lemo, who disclosed this, said  this was the reason why the abovementioned states were been slated for the second phase of the cash-less project billed to kick off on the July 1st.  Acknowledging that there have been and there are still challenges with the cashless project, he said most of them are being resolved.

you continue typing trash in d name of making a point....
y not save your megabyte for sometin useful....

so,you are trying to compare Ogun and anambra...
you must be high on weed....

what attract people to Ogun state cities...tell me.

Anambra has 3 super major city and not just crowded town....

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...

Ogun has industries,but how many people visit d state daily...



Lol, you don't have sense

We are talking about urbanization and not population

Anambra has just three major urban areas, Nnewi, onitsha, awka.

Ogun has abeokuta, Ota, ifo, mowe, ibafo, sagamu, ijebu ode, ilaro.

Ogun knew if they spread industries to most areas of the state and also provide infrastructures for them then it will stop migration to the capital.

In anambra's case, most of their industries aren't distributed , they are concentrated majorly in onitsha and Nnewi while awka is the administrative capital with just few industries

So ogun has more urban cities than anambra and thank God you have confirmed it yourself too that anambra has just three major cities

you are not interested in big business news, so how will you hear of them? Those are companies where employees are millionaires building 2, 3 houses. If you are not current, you will not hear of them of course but Reuters, Bloomberg, Financial Times and etc write of them and they see them as major companies.


If Osun is organised like Germany, Japan or the UK, they can raise more than 20 billion dollars equivalent a year, as in they can raise money inside Osun that can do more than what 20 billion dollars can do in the USA.
