As 2019 approach and the heat of who should occupy the Perogrino House (Cross River State Government House, Daimond Hill) intensifies 47 Stakeholders from the Northern and Southern Senatorial district have convened and recommend that zoning be maintained in the next general election and beyond.

According to them zoning has been able to bring about peace and stability in the State and the rotation beginning from the South to Central and then North should be continued.

The meeting which was convened by by Brigedia General Anthony ukpo (Rt.) and Chief Asuqou Ekpeyong (OON) had the following resolutions:

“The principle of rotation/zoning the Governorship seat should be maintained and sustained among the three Senatorial District in the State in all future elections.

“Both side agreed that such rotation/zoning consists of allowing each Senatorial District to complete it eight (8) years of two terms as this was case of the South/Centeral District.

“Upon the completion of the second term by the Northern Senatorial District in 2023, the rotation/zoning shall commence in the Southern Senatorial District and follow in that sequence as earlier instituted.

“There is need for further engagement starting with a meeting between the North and Centeral Senatorial District. This will be followed by a tripartite meeting between all the Elder, Leaders, Opinion Molders and Stakeholders of the three Senatorial District of the State to consolidate this arrangement and make them broadly acceptable to the people of the State as a means of ensuring peaceful political coexistence and stability.”
