Songo ([Sọngọ] error: {{lang-xx}}: text has italic markup (help)) is a planned city in the State of Sanyan in Ayorin. It is a highly urbanized area within the Greater Akurun Area. It was originally designed in 1936 as Ayorin's first accessory city with the goal of relieving overcrowding and congestion in neighboring Akurun. However, several delays and the outbreak of the Ayori Civil War At the 2016 census, the population was 522,512; while the metropolitan population was estimated to be 2,279,789, making it the seventh-most populous metropolitan area in Ayorin. Together with Runako to the south, it makes up a part of the Akurun megalopolis.

After the destruction the civil war had brought upon Akurun, and the subsequent reconstruction efforts, the town grew rapidly, and real estate values boomed. The first of the planned communities (in what are now the awuji Adonian Park, Anjoduma, and Ilorin) were established in the 1960s with the efforts of Prime Minister Kayin Oylekan. At the same time, Fort Bayana, the headquarters of the Adonian international peacekeepers, became the starting point for the building up of seven more communities by military families and Adonian Community forces who worked in the base area. The first office buildings were built on what is now the Songo Central Business District. Since the late 1970s, Songo has transformed into a financial and commercial center in the country, and since the completion of the Songo Innovation Park in 2005, has emerged as the center of Ayorin's hi-tech development and manufacturing industry.
