Stop the shameful begging in Bawku and crack the whip

Fri, 5 Sep 2014 Source: Abugri, Haruna S.

Dear reader, I am always shocked to the bone whenever the unwanted

protracted Bawku conflict makes headlines in the media. There are

always more questions than answers. We are told of a phrase in law

which goes: "equality before the law". If this preamble really has a

place in our not-too-effective constitution, then Ghanaians are at a

loss.

Painfully, the needless and chronic conflict believed to have always

been caused by few jobless miscreants is always tackled as a

chieftaincy conflict. The question then is: which chieftaincy? The

chieftaincy that has long been resolved by the highest court? This is

baloney! Why should we be aimlessly fighting over an already digested

meat! Is this not madness?

Is Bawku not been ruled by a constitutionally certified peace loving

traditional ruler, His Royal Highness, Zug-Ran Naba Asigri Abugrago

Azoka II?. Why should we then engage in needless self-destructions

instead of joining hands to work towards the progress of the KUSSAUG

KINGDOM? Unfortunately, we are in a country where the truth is always

swept under the carpet. It is heart-breaking the fact that people have

arrogantly discarded the constitutional verdict and have resorted to

the use of the guns, and what successive governments have been doing

is to beg instead of cracking the whip.

Please enforce the law and stop begging! It is a shame. Are we not

equal before the law? Government, the security agencies and the

judiciary should use the power invested in them. We don't have to

persuade a law breaker in this 21st century. Begging a law breaker is

tantamount to endorsing criminality. Our media institutions for

heaven's sake should always be fair in their reportage whenever they

get 'dirty meat from Bawku to feed on'. I read with bleeding heart,

the bias stance of some media houses in relative to the sad recent

shootings in Bawku. One of the media houses, whose name I won't

mention for now, has been in this dirty unfair reportage of Bawku

issues for God knows how long. Shame!

To the enemies of the KUSSAUG KINGDOM, I leave them with this piece

from chapter 1 verse 1 of the Kussaug kingdom peace campaign book

which reads: "He who plans evil against the progress of Kussaug

kingdom MUST fail". To the good people of Bawku, peace truly loves us;

let's also love it in return and sincerely too.

May Allah fill our hearts with patience, for He Allah is with those

who are patient. Chapter 2 verse 153 of the Holy Quran.

Assalamu-Alaikum.
