Former President John Mahama has promised to consolidate the peace in the Kingdom of Dagbon by involving all the stakeholders in the peace process.
The former President made this declaration while on his Thank You tour of the Kingdom.
According to him, the future government will support all relevant stakeholders within the Dagbon Peace Project impartially to ensure that the fledgling peace in the area is fortified.
Dagbon had suffered a 30-year civil war until recently, peace talks that had span the Kufuor, Mills and Mahama governments had been consolidated under the Presidency of Akufo-Addo.
Deliberate efforts by the Akufo-Addo regime had seen a final resolution to the bitter war that had left several dead and had rendered Dagbon, a pale shadow of it’s former self.
Interestingly, President Mahama claims the Akufo-Addo regime is unwilling to clamp down on the impunity in Dagbon.
Mr. Mahama was speaking at two separate events at the Gbewaa Palace in Yendi and the Nanton-Naa Mahamadu V’s Palace at Nanton Zuo over the weekend as part of his two-day Thank-You Tour of the Northern region.
At the Ya Na’s Palace, the former President promised that his government will not, proverbially, give the Ya-Na a cow in public and then go back to hold its tale in secret.
A future NDC government he said, will give the people full and impartial support to ensure genuine peace and rapid development of the area.
Later, former President Mahama sympathised with the Nanton-Naa Mahamadu V in his Palace at Nanton-Zuo, saying he is a political victim.
The Nanton-Naa, he lamented, has been refused support by the government to assume his rightful traditional role in Nanton because of his perceived membership of the NDC.
