Hon. Najeem Salaam, Speaker of the Osun State House of Assembly, has said nothing will stop the All Progressives Congress (APC) from zoning the next governorship seat to Osun West Senatorial District.
The tenure of Governor Rauf Aregbesola ends in few months.
Salaam told newsmen in Osogbo on Thursday, that zoning had become a convention in the nation, and not only in Osun State.
He said: “Zoning is not alien to us in the country. It is a known political arrangement. It is convention, it has become a tradition that everybody practice all over.
“Whoever that is involved in politics talks about the zoning. We talk about the north and south dichotomy when it comes to national politics and when it comes to state politics as well, zoning should be by senatorial.
“Our leaders in the Osun West Senatorial District have met and met with aspirants as well, where we all agreed that we must abide by zoning.
“Zoning is a practice that we all abide by it in the state of Osun and all over the country. It is conventional rules, it is not a written law but we all believe in it, there must be zoning.”
