Senator Bassey berates Duke for opposing zoning in 2023

The Senator representing Southern Senatorial District in Cross River State in the National Assembly, Gershom Bassey has insisted there is zoning in the State.

The Senator who was reacting to the social media comment of Mr. Donald Duke, a former governor who described recently on new year’s day while interacting with some journalists at his residence that zoning is undemocratic and against the PDP constitution which explicitly stipulates the party’s position on the principles of rotation.

According to Bassey, section 7 (3)(c) states that under the rotation principle, the North shall finish their mandate to produce the next governor of the State. He warned PDP to do the needful by giving him the ticket as shifting the goal post will make them lose the election, thereby relinquishing victory to the APC whom Governor Ben Ayade has vowed to give 2023 governorship ticket to a Southern candidate.
