Pictures And Observations From My Trip To Ijebu-jesa, A Town In Osun State by pocohantas(f): 11:48am On Dec 22, 2020
1— Introduction

I was excited about this trip because it would be my first time in a “remote” Yoruba state. I had a program to attend there, the empowerment program of an NGO I volunteer for.

My trip was to Ijebu-jesa

Ijebu-jesa is the capital of Oriade Local Government area in Osun State of Nigeria.

It is a commuter city with connections to Ekiti State on one side, Ondo State on another and it has a border with the famous Ilesa the surrounding towns area Iwoye-jesa, Iloko-jesa, Ere and Ijeda. Ijebu-jesa which hitherto before now was known and called Ijebu Egboro is the ancient historic town in the east of Osun State, Nigeria occupies a strategic position in Ijesaland. In Ijesa division, it is the next most important town politically and in term of history . Her Oba is the next to the Owa Obokun of Ijesaland

Barely into the journey, we had a little accident and it got me disoriented. However, it was a short trip as promised. Took us about 3-4hrs. Traffic and time wasted after a little accident.

A neighbourhood I went to:
Had to go greet my host’s family.

Last pic: Our takeaway from the accident. It has been worked on a bit. Tail light was broken.

FOR PEOPLE INTERESTED IN THE COST...

#MODIFIED

I really can’t give a good breakdown of it, but I will try.

Transport:
Lagos - Osun (Ijebu-jesa) = 30k
Osun (Ijebu-jesa) - Oyo (Ibadan) = 25k
Ibadan - Lagos = 25k

Accomodation (x No. of nights you want):
In Ilesa = 18k/night
Ibadan = 30k+/night


Food:
In Ilesa;
Breakfast (yam and egg) = N2000
Lunch (Rice or swallow with any soup & protein) = N4000
Dinner (chicken pepper soup) = N1700

In Ibadan;
Complimentary breakfast is available

Efo Riro, semo and ogunfe = N4000

Rice, dodo and beef = N3800

The cost of the food is for the hotel. Outside is definitely way cheaper.

Still haven't found a place in my heart to forgive this one for the last time she created a thread like this and refused to show her face and boom! She posted another one without her pictures at all.






2020 keeps getting worse.

I did, but pictures do no justice to his looks. The second he knew I wasn’t Yoruba, he switched to English and the diction just touch my heart.

We got outside and I asked my host, that man is very educated and he didn’t school in Nigeria, right? Answer was positive. I told him if the man needs second wife, a menopausal feminist is available. grin grin

You're a very silly girl grin but this thread reminds me of why I like your persona, especially that part where you listed your take on the trip.

There's something about older men that trips me as well and it's not far from your description of the Oba. They are usually well spoken, well comported and distinguished in their carriage/manner.
