Understanding the Sociology of Ekiti People

Aduralere Oluwagbohunmi


The Ekiti people of South-West Nigeria among other things are considered by many as; intelligent, honest, fearless, disciplined and hardworking. Evidently, these attributes are not mere scholarly gesticulations and accolades bestowed on this homogenous group of people but they are time-tested traits rooted in historical contexts, and produced through painful encounter with both nature and human in the last two centuries. However, despite these spacial and social encounters, they have unconsciously discovered their hidden potentials and created a long lasting identity for themselves. Ekiti people have achieved some strange results under strange circumstances, and the thrust of this paper is to consider, from sociological point of view, how the social currents that shaped past events continued to shape present and future narratives.
