Popoola was declared the winner when delegates from all the 33 local government areas of the state affirmed his candidature, being the only person who purchased the gubernatorial form.

Popoola while speaking after his emergence, said there will be no room for thuggery in the 2023 elections.

He said, “I want to thank God for bringing us here safely. I want to thank the INEC REC for his admonition.

“There will be no room for thuggery in 2023. The work has started. We have to work.

“I will ensure that youths play a major role in our government”.

Agboke while speaking, urged people to shun vote-buying.

He said, “Do not buy votes, do not sell votes. All the 18 political parties have a presence in Oyo State.
