Steve Oruoruo, Special Adviser on Media to Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, has said that the enshrined zoning system in the governorship of Enugu State has come to stay.

Oruoruo made the disclosure in reaction to the raging argument in the state about zoning, said the arrangement was started by the forefathers and is also enshrined in the constitution of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The Governor’s aide said those that are preaching against zoning are “few overzealous politicians” that wants “to heat up the polity in Enugu State through needless arguments” against a practice “that has not only been in existence in the state, but well enshrined in the constitution of the PDP.”

Oruoruo said it was normal for politicians nursing various ambitions to make spurious claims about their capacity or influence, especially as the 2023 general elections draw near.

He said: “The Enugu people know that it has been a tradition to move the governorship from one Senatorial District to another. The power-sharing arrangement was not the making of Governor Ugwuanyi, but that of the founding fathers of the state.

“It is possible that some people want to destabilise the government in Enugu State, but as you can see our peace-loving governor has maintained his focus. Notable leaders and elder statesmen have spoken and the situation is clear that zoning exists and must continue to exist in the state.

“Peace and harmonious social co-existence mean the world to His Excellency, who, as a child of God has continued to restrain himself from joining issues with those whose stock in trade is stoking misunderstanding.”
