Government is impressing upon the people of Dagbon to give peace a chance to enable the area achieve rapid development after more than a decade of backwardness due to conflict.
Deputy Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Joseph Kpemka particular urged the two feuding factions, the Abudu and the Andani gates to allow for the smooth implementation of the roadmap to peace as outlined in the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II led committee of eminent chiefs.
The committee last week submitted a detailed roadmap that will ensure lasting peace in Dagbon including the burial of the two late overlords of the Dagbon State.
The Deputy Minister who was speaking on Accra based Joy Fm’s News File programme, said government, following recommendations from the eminent chiefs is fixated at ensuring that the funerals of the two overlords are performed, to pave way for the resolution of the other matters.
Mr. Kpemka opined that it was imperative for the two sides to make compromises, soften their entrenched positions and allow for the resolution of the impasse once and for all so that the Dagbon state can return to its days of glory and peace.
‘’I am making a passionate appeal that those who are holding the press conferences and all that, they should all look at the interest of Dagbon, the peace of Dagbon and the peace of Ghana’’ he added.
