The MP for Bimbilla, Mohammed Abass Ibn, has asked the government to support the Northern regional House of Chiefs to enable it resolve the chieftaincy dispute in his constituency.

Fighting broke out between the feuding factions in Bimbilla early this year. Calm has since returned to the area, following the imposition of a curfew.


But Alhaji Abass said the chieftaincy dispute should be resolved to ensure total peace in the area.

“He cannot mistake calm for peace. One of the critical issue that brought up that problem was the undue delay in deciding who was the rightful person to ascend the throne and in talking to the regional house of chiefs their main problem was the constraints of resources.

We expected that the resources that the regional house of chiefs will need to expedite action for this matter is far less than resources that we will expend when there is conflict,” he said.

Alhaji Abass told JOY NEWS that his request to be allowed to ask an urgent question in parliament on the Bimbilla issue has not been granted.

“I have met the minister for Interior on one or two occasions to remind him about the situation so that at least people of Bimbilla could be assured of what was being done to bring an end to this impasse.

Unfortunately that has not received attention. I remember a few weeks ago I drew the attention of Mr Speaker to the fact that the issue was urgent and needed to be treated as such, unfortunately up till now, it has not yet come up.

But I thought that it is not the best for our democracy and the people of Bimbilla,” he said.
