Ibadan becoming a darling of tech innovators

Ibadan is gradually closing the rank against the commercially viable state, Lagos and becoming Nigeria's next most lucrative tech city within the country in recent years.

This description is born out of the city's recent growth on Global Startup Ecosystem Index 2021 released by StartupBlink. Ibadan's position rose above 601 places to rank 353rd globally.
