Osun state 2018: Youths reject zoning

OSOGBO—HUNDREDS of youths, including students and artisans, under the aegis of Development Advocacy Group, DAG, yesterday, staged a peaceful protest in Osogbo against the zoning arrangement by all the registered political parties to pick their candidates for the September 22 governorship election in Osun State. The youth group, who gathered from all the 30 local government areas of the state and the area council, said that zoning was not a convention adding that it has never dictated the political direction in the state. It described zoning agitation as “petty and shenanigan”, meant only for the benefit of politically desperate elites at the expense of the masses. They carried placards of various inscriptions such as: ‘Merit is Key to Development’, ‘Osun 2018 is our Future, Stop Hate Speech’, ‘Good Governance is about Merit’, ‘Zoning is Parochial’, among others. Speaking with newsmen, one of the coordinators of the youth group, Tayo Olarinoye, said the zoning arrangement has no precedent or basis in any laws or any political party’s constitution. He maintained that the youths will make sure that whoever will emerge candidate of any political party in Osun state must be competent, capable and ready to continue the good work of Governor Rauf Aregbesola. Also, the Publicity Secretary of DAG, Wasiu Ibrahim, said the group was concerned about the continuity of programmes of Aregbesola, insisting that zoning does not qualify anybody to continue the job. He said the group wants the best candidate to govern the state, saying “zoning would not be the determinant for picking the best candidate.”
