Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River state, has opined the type of democracy being practised in Nigeria lacks equity and fairness.

Ayade stated this while speaking on Sunday while addressing some stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the governor’s lodge in Calabar, the state capital.

The governor, who said the principle of zoning should be entrenched in the nation’s political system, said democracy does not create the balance that is needed for natural justice.

He said: “We inherited a brand of democracy which is not afrocentric, neither does it have the sensitivity of the African culture and morality,”

“Democracy is so primitively blind that it reduces itself to numbers. The higher your population, the more you win. So there is nothing like balancing, there is no equity in democracy.

“There is no moral conscience. Democracy is blind to ethnicity, it is blind to religion, it is blind to fairness, it is repugnant to natural justice.”

Ayade reiterated his commitment to ensuring the zoning of the governorship ticket of the state to the southern senatorial district in 2023.
