“We have taken a stand for the sake of peaceful coexistence among all the stakeholders in the state. The forum respect the opinion and views of other stakeholders in the state and we expect others to respect our stand as well.

“We do not want to over stretch this matter. The beauty of discussions is that we are all free to express our views but it will be left for Deltans to make their choice. We stand by our Chairman and leadership under HRM (Prof) Chike Edozien.

“We enjoin other stakeholders in the state to respect our position. Moving forward, we want to start reaching out to our counterparts in other senatorial districts for us to harmonize/agree permanently on this position so it won’t be an item of debate in future.

“Hopefully, we shall be meeting with Delta Central Traditional Rulers Forum by weekend at Asagba’s palace, Asaba to hear their views on this matter. There after we will meet the Delta South Traditional Rulers Forum as well and hear their views too because the zoning on Senatorial bases has and will continue to guarantees peace, sanctity, sanity, equity and sustained unity in diversity among the people in the three senatorial districts in the state.

“When it gets to your Senatorial district equity and sense of belonging can be used for the overall interest of that district. Take for example, Delta northerner is now in Government house Asaba, an Ika man. We believe that when next it returns to our Senatorial district, Aniocha, Oshimili or Ndokwa person should be considered.
