The Regent of Tolon, Retired Major Sulemana Mahama Abubakari, has implored the youth of Dagbon to abide by the the Otumfuo led Mediation Committee’s final road-map to the restoration of peace in Dagbon.
The Mediation Committee’s Chairman, the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, presented the final road-map to the President at the Jubilee House on Wednesday.
President Nana Akufo Addo has since issued an executive order on the final road-map which has paved the way for the performance of funerals of the late two Overlords of Dagbon.
The Tolon Regent, Retired Major Sulemana Abubakari in a Citi News interview implored the Dagbon youth to remain calm.
“Everybody in Dagbon should be patient. I am saying patience because sometimes when things like that happen and you start jubilating, it can derail a lot of things. Sometimes when this sort of thing happens and you think you have lost you know maybe, in the final analysis, you will be the winner. So let all of us as Muslims put our trust in God.”
“I believe that nobody should be rejoicing and nobody should be crying. It is the will of Allah, let us get together perform the two Kings’ funerals and see what the future will bring to Dagbon.”
The Tolon Regent asked the youth to desist from any negative tendencies likely to overturn the progress made so far.
He tasked them to respect the decision of the three eminent Kings mediating the Dagbon chieftaincy stalemate.
He said Dagbon youth should serve as peace Ambassadors in their localities.
Retired Major Sulemana Abubakari thanked the Mediation Committee and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo for the bold steps taken to bring to finality the Dagbon chieftaincy impasse between the Abudu and Andani royals.
“The first thing is to thank Almighty God for making it possible with the eminent chiefs and the President to agree on the process that will actually bring peace to Dagbon.”
