The Northern Regional Security Council (REGSEC) has vowed to ensure the full implementation of the road map towards the resolution of the Dagbon chieftaincy conflict.

 

Mr Salifu Saeed, Northern Regional Minister, who is the chairman of the REGSEC in an interview with Ghanaian Times yesterday, maintained that nothing would stop the implementation of the road map.

 

The Eminent Chiefs’ Mediation Committee, under the chairmanship of Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, together with the representatives of the Abudus and Andanis of the Dagbon Royal Gates, drafted a road map to help resolve the crisis.

 

It was presented to the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House.

 

The Minister emphasised that it was the duty of the REGSEC to support the eminent chiefs to find lasting solution to the conflict.

 

“We are very determined and committed to ensure that the road map crafted by the Eminent Chiefs’ Mediation Committee is successfully implemented to the letter,” he stated.

 

Mr Saeed, therefore, warned that the security personnel would not spare anyone who attempts to foment trouble during the entire process.

 

He pleaded with the leadership of both Abudus and Andanis to respect the road map and desist from acts that hindered the peace process.

 

Mr Saeed said the entire Dagbon, for that matter the whole region, stand to benefit from the peace of the area and that it was incumbent on all to support the eminent chiefs to restore peace in the traditional area.

 

“Time has come for all of us, especially those of us from Dagbon, to support the Eminent Chiefs’ Mediation Committee to succeed,” the Minister stated.

 

Mr Saeed stated that the government has no interest in the matter, stressing that the interest of government was to help resolve it once and for all.

 

“We do not have any interest in the Dagbon crisis; our only interest is to support the eminent chiefs to bring finality to the protracted crisis,” Mr Saeed said.
