One of the tour’s highlights was the visitation to the newly built Olubadan Palace, nestled majestically at Oke Aremo. Here, amidst the echoes of history and tradition, students were immersed in the rich tapestry of Ibadan’s royal legacy, gaining insight into its customs and heritage.

Ascending to greater heights, both metaphorically and literally, the tour then led to the iconic Bower’s Tower, perched at Igbo Agala at Oke Aremo. From this vantage point, students beheld the panoramic vista of Ibadan, as the city sprawled below, a testament to its grandeur and resilience.

Amidst the exploration and cultural immersion, moments of leisure and recreation were cherished.

Against the backdrop of Ibadan’s scenic beauty, friendships were forged, and memories etched forever.

Indeed, the tour orchestrated by the FIBSU-UNIOSUN 2023/2024 executives and coordinators, under the astute leadership of Aare Adepoju Afeez Babatunde, transcended mere sightseeing.
