THE YOUTH of the Abudu Royal Gate of the Dagbon Chieftaincy Divide, has called on the Committee of Eminent Chiefs entrusted to restore peace in Dagbon to fast-track the implementation of the peace road-map to ensure everlasting peace and accelerated development in the area.

According to the Abudus, the slow pace of negotiations and implementation was breeding suspicion, mistrust and was likely to open the gates for all kinds of imaginable chaos.

At a press conference in Yendi on February 7, 2007, the Abudus expressed dissatisfaction at the work done so far by the Committee of Eminent Chiefs led by His Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II and challenged them to speed up the rest of the process for the sake of peace.

They maintained that, it was agreed at their sitting on March 10, 2006 that the next item on the map shall follow shortly after the Regent’s installation, but till now, the next step was yet to be decided upon after almost ten months.

“After four long years of difficulty, the Committee’s work is still not halfway through, and much as we appreciate the effort, care and nobility must be infused into their work”.

“The burial and installation of a Regent for the late Ya-Na Yakubu Andani was the next item on the road-map signed and agreed on, on the 10th of March 2006, so the rest must follow”.

According to the Abudus, peace and tranquility of the land, particularly as Ghana was preparing to celebrate her 50th Anniversary was dear to their hearts, since that was a prerequisite for development so they entreat the appropriate authorities to take the necessary actions to avoid any spontaneous reactions that might mar the beauty of their year long merriment.

They acknowledged the fact that peace and tranquility was at its peak at all stages in the area, and appealed to the government to make timely and adequate security arrangements to complement the efforts of the Committee of Eminent Chiefs. They however urged their brothers from the Andani Royal Gate to allow them to hold the Gbewa tradition together in cooperation.

The Abudus commended the UNDP and GHANEP for their commitment and called on them to review the implementation of the road-map and to help straighten out the rough ends.
