2011: Anglican Bishop justifies why Jonathan should contest

From Nigeria-

The Bishop of the Diocese of Kubwa (Anglican Communion), t he Right Reverend Duke Akamisoko, has explained why President Goodluck Jonathan should contest the 2011 poll, even as he advocated zoning policy in the Nigerian political equation.

However, the cleric's notion of zoning is different from the present North/South rotational arrangement of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), noting that the Presidency should be rotated among the six geo-political zones in the country.

Akamisoko, who spoke at a press briefing on the second session of the first synod of the Diocese of Kubwa in Abuja, advised President Jonathan to take the slot offered by this arrangement without delay.

He said: “Zoning is the best political option for Nigeria, but not on the erroneous principle of North/South divide. I see zoning from a different light. Against the current clamour for zoning to be based on the current North/South, Christian/Muslim arrangement, zoning should be practised on the line of the present six geo-political zones.”
