Ado Ekiti is a very very serene area. If you’re moving from a small town to Ado Ekiti, cost of living might be too high for you but if you’re moving from the high side to here, you will really love it here because it will be so affordable for you.

Ado Ekiti is the capital of Ekiti state. It’s a peaceful Yoruba city. Accommodation is fairly cheap. Indigenes speak mostly Yoruba but most understand English. Light is reasonable. Downside is no cinema, shoprite or airport. But fairly reasonable malls. Just average hangout joints. Nightlife is non existent. Overall it’s a fairly safe and affordable city but a little boring and non indigenous people might continuously have to tell people they don’t understand Yoruba.

Ado Ekiti is a developing urban area. The city contains multiple schools, religious centres and shops. You can get whatever you need within at least a 10 minutes walk. Electricity is of minor concern and is recently more developed. This means that unless you live in a really rural area, you have a fair chance of good electricity and water supply.

Ado Ekiti is a beautiful land of hills and mountains. It is home to one of the most friendly groups of people in Nigeria dedicated to entertaining visitors and newcomers. The city is a just emerging urban community where some of the conveniences of a developed urban society are probably lacking yet, there are a lot of features that make the city stand out.

Anyone interested in moving here should know the landscape is lined with huge mountains. Also, the place is usually very cold at night and it is always advisable to stay indoors during the night periods. The mountains are a hiding place for wild animals too hence, only hunters are permitted to go there.

A new person moving to Ado, must know the palace. The major markets are Oja Oba, Oja Bisi, and Oja Okesa, in case the person wants to buy food to eat and cloth. Ado is the capital of Ekiti State in Nigeria, and it’s a peaceful city.
