|Time zone||WAT (UTC+1)|
It has an area of 480 km² and a population of 54,850 at the 2006 census.
Among other communities in Ekiti are: Aare-Opin, Isolo-Opin, Isare-Opin, Osi, Ikerin-Opin, Oke-Opin, Epe-Opin, Owaatun-Opin, Etan, Obbo-Aiyegunle, Obbo-Ile, Eruku, Ajuba, Isapa, Ejiu, and so on.
The present Ekiti Local Government headquarter was never a known community in OPIN LAND, but a compound from Isolo-Opin. This became a legal tussle and various communal unrest when the local government was created.
A land mark judgment later declare Isolo-Opin as entitle to be the headquarter and not Araromi Opin.
One of the credence to this judgment is the fact that there are 12 Opins, who are children of a father and Araromi was never among them.
It has become difficult to effect name changes because of political issues and legislative processes.
