The Asantehene has registered his disappointment at the behaviour of both the Abudu and Andani royals of the Dagbon kingdom for not abiding by the roadmap to peace they set up for themselves.
He condemned the Andanis for a letter they circulated expressing some reservations about the peace accord and said it smacked of disrespect for the chieftaincy institution for both Andani and Abudu royals to agree on the road map and turn back to choose and pick some aspects.
In reference to Friday August 25th clash between Abudu youth and security personnel at the old Gbewa palace at Yendi leading to the death of three and injuries to many the Asantehene charged the elders of the royal families to sensitise their people, especially the youth about the peace accord so as to prevent future violence.
Meanwhile the Asantehene, who chair the Committee of eminent kings has postponed the meeting till the 15th or 16th of September, 2006 to pave way for him to embark on a journey to Libya.
With tears coursing down his cheeks, the Northern Regional Minister, Alhaji Mustapha Ali Idris, who was very bitter about the situation and the bad image the Dagbon crisis is creating for the region, urged the two royal gates to bury their differences and work towards the development of the region. He urged them to think first about the development opportunities that elude Dagbon and the region as a result of their unending feud.
In a related development, the Northern Regional Minister has told journalists in Tamale that the Regional Security Council (REGSEC) is leaving no stone unturned in pursuance of the perpetrators of the August 25 clash. He said all those big fishes who manipulate the youth into taking the law into their own hands will be exposed.
