The National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Victor Oye, has said that the zoning system as introduced by former Governor Peter Obi during his tenure for governorship election in the state will be adhered to in the next governorship election in 2013.
He said that equity demands that the next governor of Anambra State in 2022 will come from Anambra South Senatorial District.
Oye stated this on Thursday in an interview in his country home in Amawbia, Awka South Local Government Area of Anambra State.
He said: “Is that in doubt? The zoning arrangement was started by Peter Obi as an APGA governor then.
“Obi insisted that the governor the next that would succeed him should come from the north district, and now that north has done five years, we have just three years to go, and it is very likely it will go to the south.”
Oye said that when the governorship seat has gone round all zones, then it can start again from where it started.
“Everything about the future is in the hands of God, but as a political party, I would like it to go to the south district for equity sake,” he said.
