Amass Ghana salutes Dagbon for the return of peace

Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), AMASS Ghana (AG), has commended the people of Dagbon for smoking the peace pipe after many years of chieftancy dispute.

Following the death of Ya-Naa Yakubu Andani II since 2002, the Dagbon state was thrown into a mode of chaos and controversy over the next successor.

This left left Dabgon bereft of its unity to intermittent unrests which dissipated the security of the Dagbon people, plaguing national security into an abyss by far until the recent enstoolment of a new Yaa-Naa.

In the wake of the successful coronation of Naa Abukari Mahama as the 44th Ya-Na of Dagbon, AG was of the hope that other tribes, involved in similar conflicts, will take a cue from the people of Dagbon and ensue peace.

"We at AG, with the same sense of optimism would dream to one day, round-of applause for other disputing families also in the northern part of Ghana like the Konkombas, Chokosis and Nanums and then in northern Volta, Nkonyas and Alavanyos from their 1913 intermittent renewed skirmishes, should they return to peace table." The statement from AG read.

Below is the full statement:

AMASS Ghana (AG), as a Conflict Resolution and Peace Building based non-governmental organisation (NGO) would pause in the midst of civil unrest in Northern Ghana, to salute the people of Dagbon for the return of relative peace. The composure of Abudus and Andanis so far, deserves applause!

In the same vein, following the enskinment of a new Overlord of Dagbon, Ya-Naa Abubakar Mahama II; AG would chest out and salute the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II and his team of eminent chiefs, who sought to broker peace for the disputing gates – Abudus and Andanis, serving as an oasis of peace in the desert of conflict.

Government through the security agencies and other related stakeholders must also be appreciated for the surpassing efforts that have rivalled the peaceful enskinment of the new Ya-Naa.

Following the death of Ya-Naa Yakubu Andani II since 2002, controversy over the next successor has left Dabgon bereft of its unity to intermittent unrests which dissipated the security of the Dagbon people, plaguing national security into an abyss by far.

We at AG, with the same sense of optimism would dream to one day, round-of applause for other disputing families also in the northern part of Ghana like the Konkombas, Chokosis and Nanums and then in northern Volta, Nkonyas and Alavanyos from their 1913 intermittent renewed skirmishes, should they return to peace table.

Until Ghana joins hands with sister African nations to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organsation (NATO) and other international peace building organisations at global arena for international co-operation, she would need to settle home the feuding factions that are acting as vampires, sucking the blood of national stability in peace – such is a desperate recourse of Amass Ghana.

Long live Dagbon! Long Live Ghana!!
