Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government, a veritable industral local government in Ogun State with its headquaters at Ota, came into being in 1989 following demands for more local government in the State. It is a product of the merger of the former Ifo/Ota local government Ado-odo/Ota local government(Ado-Odo and Igbesa areas).
 
It is a grade A local government and the third largest in Ogun State, Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government.
