Mrs. Ruth Popoola, the wife of the Oyo state gubernatorial candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Joshua Popoola on Sunday assured that her husband would unseat the governor of Oyo state, Seyi Maknide in the Agodi government house.
Mrs Popoola who however agreed that though the party is a new political party in the state said the rate at which the people of the state are embracing the party in Oyo state gives hope that it would triumph in the forthcoming general elections.
Speaking at a stakeholders consultation of wives of Arewa in all the Hausa communities held at the Recreation Centre, Ibadan, the Mrs Popoola promised to give attention to women and children, if her husband is elected in 2023.
She said; “This is consultation with he hausa community in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital because camping is yet to start. We have started consultation with different communities. This time, it is the turn of women in Hausa community this morning. It is to sensitive them about my husband’s ambition and to tell them what we have to offer and to hear from them as feedback, what they expected from government.
“Our chances are very bright. Though God owns everything but I can assure you that come 2023, NNPP will occupy the government house. As a mother, our priority in life is how to take care of children and women.
“Sadly, when you look at our street today, you will see many children begging for food while many of them are dealing with drugs. This is because our children are not engaged. Our leaders are forgetting that an idle man is a devil workshop.  I am not promising that all graduates will be employed but we will ensure our children are engaged. Incidentally, I had worked as a director in an agency that certified skills in Nigeria. I know the importance of skills and I know what skills can do for Nigerians. If we are able to go back and look inward, when our children are properly engaged, social vices would be reduced.
“For instance; a mechanic who had worked in his workshop for the whole day cannot have time to kidnap his fellow brother. He would be too tired to go into the street for kidnapping business. He won’t have time to steal and disturb people. I am looking at that area that by the grace of God, our government will revisit those areas that had been forgotten and see the positive impact it will have on our society.”
