Offa community declares support for Gov AbdulRazaq’s second term


Ilorin…Political rumblings have resumed in Kwara state over the call by a revered monarch in the state, His Royal Majesty, Olofa of Offa, Oba Mufutau Gbadamosi on Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq to contest for second term because of what he described as his exceptional performance in the last two years which no other governor in the history of the state had attained within the same period.

But one of the arch political enemies of the governor who currently represents the community in the State House of Assembly, Hon Saheed Popoola, an indigene of Offa, tackled his monarch for this public declaration of support. However, some indigenes of the town, particularly from the ruling All Progressives Congress, who felt offended by the lawmaker’s attack gathered at their town hall on Thursday to reprimand the lawmaker.

Recall that Hon Popoola, who was one of the arrow heads of “O to ge” (meaning “Enough is enough”) political struggle which brought the present administration in the state to power had his eyes on the Speakership position when the governor took over.
