Sustain Dagbon Peace

President John Agyekum Kufuor has assured the people of Dagbon that his government is committed to ensuring that the murderers of the late Overlord of Dagbon, Ya-Na Yakubu Andani II, are brought to book.

Justice must prevail to help heal the painful wounds of the people of Dagbon and the bereaved families who have been devastated by the heinous crime.

Justice is an inalienable right of every human being. No wonder our Founding Fathers thought it fit to make it part of our national motto: Freedom and Justice.

Even though it may take a long time to find and prosecute the perpetrators of that heinous crime, they must surely be found to set the minds of all at ease.

This may call for enormous patience to see what will be the outcome, but like the proverbial cork, it would come out of the water.

It is our prayer that the Gbang-Lana (Regent), Kamkanpuya-Na Abdulai Andani, will be supported by all those wishing for peace to sustain the prevailing peace in Dagbon.

What is important now is how best every party involved in the Dagbon road map to peace, fashioned out by the Committee of Eminent Chiefs, will work to achieve the desired result so that there could be enduring peace in the area.

We recall that the burial of the late king was performed so peacefully, to the admiration of all. The maturity that the elders from the two gates — Andani and Abudu — displayed was worthy of commendation.

It is the same reasonableness and maturity that all peace-loving people are yearning for from our brothers and sisters in Dagbon.

We are conscious of the fact that any disturbance in the area would have enormous repercussions on the whole country. The Regent’s pledge to promote peace, harmony and unity is noble and important.

How assuring it is to hear him say, “Dagbon will never slip back into the chaos of the recent past”! Chaos is ugly and it must never be given a chance to be with us.

It is significant that the Regent recognises the role that the government, the Committee of Eminent Chiefs and the security agencies have played to bring Dagbon to a state of relative peace now.

It is pleasant to see the wind of peace blowing across the country. We need peace, so that much time can be spent on marshalling efforts to quicken the pace of the country’s development.

It is our conviction that nothing would be spared in thoroughly investigating the circumstances leading to the murder of the Ya-Na to lend credence to our desire to ensure that justice prevails.
