The stakeholders of Zone C in Kogi Local Government, have cautioned the leadership of Zone A working against rotational political arrangement in the Area describing the development as deceitful and selfish which may likely disorganized the long established peaceful political transition method.

The APC stakeholders from C, rising from their meeting held Wednesday, stated that there is no reason to reverse the rotational order among the zones as such will lead to political somersault and create confusion in the local government.

They advised the stakeholders of Zone A not to end the rotational zoning arrangement in the area, and appealed to them to cooperate with the other Zones to maintain and sustain the peaceful political stability enjoyed by the people.

They maintained that it will not auger well for the area if some people decide to support for an end to the rotation arrangement, advising that “we should rather work vigorously in ensuring geopolitical zonal arrangement towards maintaining and sustaining unity, equity, fair-play and development of the local government.”

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.

An Elder Advisory Council member, Alhaji Yahaya Musa Danladi, called on the Zone A leadership to respect the gentleman agreement so as not to cause havoc in Kogi LG.
