POJ, an engineer by profession and a leading governorship candidate in Oyo State became the candidate of the NNPP through affirmation arrangements after emerging unopposed during the party’s primary.
Mrs Ruth Popoola also used the opportunity to meet Arewa women groups where she distributed some gift items.
While appealing to the Hausa community to canvass, mobilise vote for POJ in the 2023 gubernatorial election, Mrs Popoola promised that the youths and women would be given adequate priority if given the mandate.

“If my husband happen to emerge as the governor, I’ll ensure that youths and women of Oyo state get trained and certified in a series of trades that could make them self-sufficient as the state can’t provide a job for all.”

Speaking with newsmen, the NNPP Federal Representative candidate for Ibadan North constituency, Hon. Monsurat Naalado Bawa assured Mrs. Popoola that, the Arewa community is solidly behind ( POJ ) as all the Arewa in the state is ready to vote massively for the party come 2023.
