Anambra Governorship Election Should Not Be Zoned – Analyst

As the nation waits for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to release the timetable for the governorship election of Anambra State, a political analyst John Nwosu have frowned at the call by some people in the state that the position of Governor should be zoned to a region of the state.

Mr Nwosu, who was a guest on Channels Television’s programme, Politics Today, said zoning is not agreeable with the tenets of democracy.
“Let the best candidate be the governor,” he said.

At the last count, many people have indicated interest in vying to succeed Governor Peter Obi, whose tenure will end on March 17 next year.
In the race for governor are notable men and women including Chris Ngige, Uche Ekwunife, Obinna Uzoh, Andy Uba , Annie Okonkwo, John Okechukwu Emeka, Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, Tony Nwoye, Clement Mbadinuju, Akachukwu Nwankpo, Paul Odenigbo, Alex Obiogbolu and Chukwuma Soludo.

Others are Nicholas Ukachukwu, Emma Anosike, Dora Akunyili, Pat Nwachi Obianwu, Dubem Obaze, Godwin Ezemmo, Chike Obidigbo, Oseloka Obaze, Chijoke Ndubisi, Chief Mike Udah, Emma Okafor, Victor Afam Ogene, Chinedu Idigo. Chima Anene, Udoka Charles Udoagalanya, Godwin Ibekwe and Adibe Uchenna Izu and Stella Oduah, minister of Aviation.

The majority of the candidates coincidentally are from Anambra North, a zone the outgoing governor has thrown his weight behind to produce the next governor. Anambra North zone has not produced a governor since the creation of the state in 1991.

On the other hand, Anambra Central had produced two governors, namely: Ngige and the incumbent, Governor Obi, while Anambra South had produced three people, in the names of Chinwoke Mbadinuju, Chukwuemeka Ezeife and Andy Uba who was in office for only 17 days.
