It is no doubt that Nigeria is a rich country particularly when it comes to talking about natural resources. Hardly will you talk about a state in Nigeria without attributing one or two natural resources with it. Ondo state is one of the state that is richly blessed in Nigeria today in terms of natural resources. It is referred to as the Sunshine state. Ondo state has its capital in Akure.

The state is predominantly occupied by the Yorubas who speak various dialects of the language such as the Akoko, Akure, Apoi, Idanre, Ijaw, Ikale, Ilaje, Ondo and the Owo.
