Why the Kwara State Governor is Third-Rate

By Farooq Kperogi

Kwara State governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq appears be a third-rate governor because he is yoked to the number 3. 

He came third in the APC governorship primaries but, through naked pecuniary inducement of the APC national leadership, went ahead to be his party’s standard-bearer. 


And his cabinet is filled with third-rate people who have no capacity to dramatize his intellectual inadequacy (he only attended secondary school whose certificate he hasn’t been able to produce) and feelings of inferiority complex.

But his association with “third” is even more intriguing. He is the third child in his family and the third Ilorin person to be elected governor of Kwara State. 

Maybe when a man is defined by “third” at every facet of his life, he can’t help being third-rate and in love with “third.”😂 OK, this part is a joke: birth order has no bearing on what people become.
