Serene environment with relaxation joints and hotel resorts around the city. Good for residential purposes.

If you are looking for a less expensive accommodation this is a good place. The road network is good except for the interiors. There are solar powered street lights along the roads and government pipe-borne water available 24/7. These make this community your best choice.

Akure is city mostly populated by civil and public servants. It has been in existence as far as the 70s. The city is known for peace and tranquility but needs technological interventions. It shares boundaries with Owo on the north and Ilesha on the south. Finally, it is the capital of Ondo state.

Akure, a city in Ondo State, Nigeria, is often called “the City for the Retired” because of its serenity. Unlike other cities in Nigeria, it has a calm atmosphere. Contrary to the popular opinion, Akure is not a “village” but a well-developed city. Funny enough, the popular shopping mall called “Shoprite” is in my city.
