Ijebu-North is a Local Government Area (LGA) in Ogun state, Nigeria, which was established in 1979. Ijebu-North has its headquarters at Ijebu-Igbo. It is bounded by Oluyole Local Government of Oyo State in the north, in the west by Ijebu East Local Government, in the south by Ijebu North East, Odogbolu and Ijebu Ode Local Government, and in the east by Ikenne Local Government. Ijebu-North was divided into Ifelodun and Ijebu-Igbo Local Government in 1981 and later re-amalgamated in January 1984.
Agriculture is the economic mainstay of the people in Ijebu-North. They produce products like oil-palm, cocoa, coffee, kolanut, maize, yam, cassava, coco-yam, vegetables and poultry stock. These agricultural products are the source of raw-materials for agro-allied industries which in turn utilize the available labor in the area. The dwellers in this area are called the IJEBUS and it is a Yoruba speaking area. The local government has 11 political wards.
