Ekiti APC chieftain, Ojo, dismisses governorship zoning formula


A Chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, Kayode Olubunmi Ojo, has advised agitators of zoning in the state to drop the idea.

He said there was no time politicians in the state agreed on zoning governorship seat to any senatorial district in the state.

The APC chieftain said Ekiti people are homogenous and more interested in having a governor that will effect positive changes in their lives and not interested in which part of the state the person comes from.


Ojo, who spoke while addressing journalists in Lagos, yesterday, said there was no time politicians from any part of the state were denied of contesting for the governorship election, but Ekiti people have been deciding who would govern them.

He said: “I am not saying that the southern people don’t have people, we have great people in Ekiti South but the way Ekiti is structured, everybody is going to go to the polls and Ekiti people will choose who they want. We see ourselves as one family in Ekiti and we speak the same dialect.”

Ojo said the ruling APC in the state had laid a solid foundation for the economic development of the state and expressed optimism that the party would win governorship election in 2022.
