The newly appointed Chairman of the House of Reps, Committee on Local Content, in the Cross River State House of Assembly, Legor Idagbo , says the zoning structure in the state will not be altered and the next Governor will come from the Southern senatorial district.

Hon. Idagbo expressed this opinion in Calabar during a chat with Journalists.

He maintained that Cross River State had a tradition (Zoning System) which will not be altered adding that it is the turn of the southern senatorial district to take over the seat of Governor by the end of the current tenure of Governor Ayade
“If I must comment, I will say that in Cross River State , we have a tradition of rotation of power and that is the only way Northern Cross River was able to benefit from the Governorship Ben Ayade enjoys till today because if there was no rotation of power, we in the North don’t have the numbers to ensure the Governorship today is in the North. If you look at the voting strength in the North,in the south and in the central, you realize that there is big disadvantage.”

On the permutations that Governorship can come from anywhere since the circle has been completed, he affirmed that
“some regards to our leaders that have suggested that Governorship can start from any zone, with due respect to them but I think that at the end of the day, we will follow the tradition and Governorship will come from the south. We know that the next Governor after senator Ben Ayade will come from the southern senatorial district”. He added.

On his appointment as Chairman Committee on Local Content, Hon. Idagbo , assured that Cross Riverians will benefit from local content.
