The Ondo State Consultative Assembly has solicited for the zoning of governorship to Akure in the central senatorial district.
The group made this known in a letter written to President Bola Tinubu, the National Chairman of the PDP, his counterpart in the APC, and those of the Labour Party and the Social Democratic Party.
The letter was signed by the group’s president Bolarinwa Omotosho and its general secretary Odunola Ogunmola-Daini.
OSCA revealed that it is only Akure, among all the major ethnic groups in the state, that has never produced a democratically elected governor since the creation of Ondo.
“It has become expedient to let the powers that be know the gravity of the injustice being visited on the Akure-speaking communities and towns in the central senatorial district of Ondo state since the return to democratic rule in 1999 and much earlier.
“The marginalisation of the Akure people has become palpable over the years despite all the support that the people of Akure have given to their brothers and sisters from other parts of the state,” it explained.
