Functional Basis of Anyigba, Nigeria as a Fast-Growing University Town

Abike Ibidunni Awosusi, Olusegun Oriye


This study is carried out to study the functions of Anyigba town especially its commercial functions. It was done to study the adequacy of the commercial functions which the town performs to the inhabitants of the town and the surrounding towns in the region. The establishment of the University coupled with improved economy has encouraged migration as people have moved to the town temporarily or permanently to benefit of its functions. As these people have come to the town, there is a need for their commercial needs to be met. The problem of the adequacy of the commercial functions of Anyigba town includes the lack of numerous markets, distance from far places to the market and the lack of organization in the manner of arrangement. It is therefore suggested that there should be a new plan for the restructuring of the existing market, market men and women encouraged to take loans to purchase goods of high quality and that corner shops and shopping arcades should be built in major areas of the town.
