A leader from Zone B Hon. Abdulrahman Wuya Okpasco, recalled that the agreement started long ago by our founding fathers and cannot be truncated by some few elements, saying that the zoning arrangement was for elective positions and not for political appointments.

He explained further that “those that had served through elective positions were on a rotational basis”.

The council Administrator, Barr. Muhammed Tanko Musa Osuku said the agitation for an end to the zoning arrangement now will not bring peace to the local government.

According to him, adhering strictly to the zoning system and the agreement at the earlier stage will not only bring peace and development, but justice, equity and fair-play in the council. He explained that every Zone stands a better chance to produce the chairmanship and assembly positions if only they will all agree that zoning has come to stay.
