Mon, 5 Sep 2022 Source: Joseph Dumolga

The Kusaug residents in Ashanti region are calling for the intervention of Vice President Dr. Mahamud Bawumia to restore peace and stability among the Kusasi and Mamprusi tribes in Bawku.

Speaking at a press conference held in the Ashanti region, the regional chairman of the Kusasi youth, Alhaji Abdul Raman Atia urges the Vice President to ensure that peace prevails within the Kusaug kingdom that allows development and progress.

He went on to add that, the Kusaug residents are peaceful and could no longer permit some other tribes that do not want peace to prevail in Bawku of Upper East region.

“ Kusasi’s are from the Upper East Region and the Mamprusi’s are from the North East Region respectively. Everyone with his town, we Kusasi’s can’t reside in North East as our home. There are a lot of Kusasi’s in North East but they don’t talk about the chieftaincy. We are in the modern world and a Mamprusi can’t go for the land of the Kusasi.

The Vice President is a Mamprusi and so he should make sure there is peace in the Upper East Region. We want development for our children and schools so we can have lawyers and doctors come from Bawku..” he said.

They however, accused the Presidents appointee as a council of state member representative for Upper East Mr. Sule Yirimiah as he complicit in the recent development in the Bawku clashes with his interest in becoming the paramount chief of the Kusaug Land.

"We suggest that Sule Yirimiah should resign from his current position as a government appointee for the council of state and explicitly show his interest in becoming the paramount chief of Bawku by legally fighting the Supreme Court ruling on the matter in order to save the innocent lives lost as a result of this conflict.
