Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen has stated that the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) played no role in the peace the people of Dagbon enjoy today.
This comes after the NDC flagbearer stated that his party had an input in the restoration of peace in Dagbon and therefore deserves credit too.
In reaction on Citi Eyewitness News, Nana Obiri Boahen said, “you cannot talk about peace in Yendi and strike my name out. In December 2019, I had to spend the night at Yendi. As for former President Mahama and his MPs, they know nothing about it. President Mahama today is talking about peace in Yendi.”
“When they were performing the funeral rites of the late Yaa-Naa Abdullai, the current NPP Regional Chairman was present. No member of NDC showed up nor participated. So as for the NDC, they should stop talking about Dagbon issues,” he added.
The people of Dagbon after years of conflicts finally had peace when the new Yaa-Naa Abukari Mahama II was installed on January 25, 2019.
