Bodija is a prime neighbourhood located in Ibadan, the third-largest city by population in Nigeria after Lagos and Kano. The area is bordered by Ojoo in the North, Agodi in the South, Akobo in the East, and Sango and Eleyele in the West.
Bodija is in close proximity to other popular areas like Dugbe (the commercial centre), the government secretariat, and top educational institutions including the University of Ibadan and Ibadan-Polytechnic. Also, one of the most popular markets in Ibadan is the Bodija market renowned for its cheap prices of foodstuffs.
The residential market in Bodija is considered prime when compared with other areas in Ibadan. However, it still falls behind when compared to the prime areas in Lagos such as Ikoyi which is considered to be ten times more expensive.
The area is mainly characterized by old government residential quarters, some of which date back to the colonial eras. These quarters have accounted for major refurbishments efforts by developers in the market,
