It is a sigh of relief in Ibadan, Oyo State capital on Sunday as the city experienced the first drop of rain in the year 2023.
OyoAffairs could confirm that the rain dropped in various degrees in a few areas of the city while some areas have the feel of the cool weather and atmosphere.
The rain was reported to have started heavily at about 3’0′ clock in the afternoon at Podo, Odo Ona Kekere and environs.
A cross section of residents in the area expressed joy over the rain, which they described as a relief to the hot weather currently being experienced.
The residents, who prayed for more rain soonest, condemned the services of IBEDC in the area, saying home appliances like fans, airconditioners, fridges, freezers that could have cushioned the effects of the heat and used for food preservation had become useless due to near zero per cent power supply.
In the meantime, further investigation by our correspondent on the first rain revealed that, while other areas felt the cool breeze effect of the rain, it merely dropped in some areas within the state capital.
