Ya Naa Yakubu
Northern Regional minister Boniface Abubakar Saddique says negotiations are still on going to find a lasting solution to the Dagbon crisis

The last time word came from the various interest groups in the Dagbon Peace Process was some four months ago when the committee of eminent chiefs failed to secure a compromise from the feuding factions.

The thorny issue at that time was which of the two royal families had a right to appoint a regent before the burial of the late Ya Na Yakubu Andani II.

The Northern Regional Minister told Joy News that discussions have since advanced and some progress was being made.

“We are still moving ahead to ensure that both parties understand each other and come to terms and then finally we pray that very soon we will have the Ya Na buried. But we are not rushing like people were expecting us to do in the early stages that the Ya Na must be buried immediately.

We are adopting a gradual process. I believe that time heals wounds and by the time we wrap up, both parties will forgive each other and then we move forward,” he said.

Mr Abubakar Saddique said certain outsiders are fueling the crisis.

“The people of Dagbon are yearning to have the Ya Na buried but at least to have the Ya Na buried means the two parties should come together. This is a family matter.

You see the secret behind the whole problem is that the royal family themselves are not the people making the noise and dragging the problem but rather we have conflict entrepreneurs who are carrying these things far.
