Either you are simply visiting or you have come to live, YOU ARE WELCOME. As necessary, you have to get a wrap around the place you are coming to inhabit as well as know how best you can maximize your stay in this city. More importantly, you have to be aware of the Dos and Donts of this area so that you don't get yourself in any trouble.

         5 WAYS OF ENJOYING YOUR STAY IN IBADAN

1. BE FRIENDLY

Being friendly doesn't necessarily mean opening up to strangers. It simply means being simple and easy going. Being approachable and understanding. You would be able to establish more connections if you are a very friendly person. You would meet a lot of people in Ibadan - from the east, west, north and south. Don't have the mindset that Ibadan is filled only with Yoruba people. If you are from the East, your people are well established here. If you are from the North, your people dey gidigba here. If you are from the South like me, our people hold body tight for here. You would miss the necessary relationship you could have made if you are a closed box.

2. BE ADVENTUROUS

It's very funny how I already know too many places than people that lived all their lives here. If you are coming for a visit, please put on your adventure cap. If you are coming to live, I know you have more time. Utilize it well by being adventurous. Ibadan has a whole lot in stock for everyone. Make sure your enjoy them as much as you can. Don't confine yourself to one particular place or area. The world has more to offer.

3. BE OPEN

Being open in this context is different from the context of establishing relationships. Be open to learning. Don't close your mind entirely. Ibadan is filled with well - learned people. Highly educated. People all over travel down here to suck from the well of knowledge Ibadan has to offer through it's university and other learning centers. While you are in Ibadan, there is a high possibility you would meet some of these people. Be open to interaction. Be open to learning new language. Be open to learning to eat new food.
