Kingmakers in Bimbilla have accused the country’s two major political parties, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of making political gain out of the protracted chieftaincy conflict.

According to them, because both parties are profiting from the situation, there are no efforts to ensure a lasting solution to the matter and therefore want the current government to take drastic steps in dealing with the situation.

Speaking at a press conference in relation to the conflict on Wednesday February 15, Mr Natogmah said the chieftaincy dispute in the area existed for a decaded but never has it been very violent as recorded in recent times.

“I can make this statement that some individuals and groups are beneficiaries of this unending conflict in Bimbilla that keep taking innocent souls. The two major political parties in Ghana manipulate the Bimbilla conflict for votes.” he said.

Meanwhile, Tahidu Osman Kikaa, Spokesperson of the Regent of Bimbilla, Naa Andani Dasana, has cautioned against political intervention in the Bimbilla chieftaincy dispute.

He said accession to the Bimbilla skin had been well-documented, adding that tradition must always be respected at all times to ensure that the right and qualified persons were enskinned as chiefs in the area.

He said the situation where some individuals thought they could use their perceived political connections to change the history of chieftaincy at Bimbilla and foment trouble and killing innocent people would be resisted.
