The Ibadan Progressive Youth Forum (IPYF) has called on all political parties to create a level-playing ground for aspirants in the 2019 governorship election.
According to the group, a deliberate zoning of the governorship slot to Oke-Ogun will only polarise indigenes of Oyo State.
The forum, in a statement by its President, Seun Abiodun, said zoning is dangerous to the future of the state as the five zones had always worked together.
The forum argued that Oke-Ogun was part of all previous administrations, but they ended up as deputy governors mostly.
It said zoning the slot to Oke-Ogun will deprive other qualified aspirants from Oyo, Ogbomoso, Ibadan and Ibarapa.
The forum argued that the political parties should rather sustain the culture of creating a level-playing ground for all aspirants to ensure that they present their best candidates in the next election.
