This is the first time Christ for all Nations has been to Ado Ekiti, Nigeria in 12 years.
Ado Ekiti, capital of Ekiti state, southwestern Nigeria. An urban and industrial centre of the region, it was founded by the Ekiti people, a Yoruba subgroup whose members belonged to the Ekiti-Parapo, a late 19th-century confederation of Yoruba peoples that fought against Ibadan for control of the trade routes to the coast.
Land and Climate
The State enjoys tropical climate with two distinct seasons. These are the rainy season (April - October) and the dry season (November -March). Temperature ranges between 69.8°F (21°C) and 82.4°F (28°C) with high humidity. The south westerly wind and the northeast trade winds blow in the rainy and dry seasons respectively. Tropical forest exists in the south, while savannah occupies the northern peripheries.
Ado-Ekiti became the site of a large textile mill in 1967, the people having a long-standing tradition of cotton weaving. The town also produces shoes and pottery and is a collecting point for commercial crops such as cocoa and timber. Crops such as yams, cassava, corn, rice, and fruits are marketed locally.
