Bawku conflict: Embrace peace, Bawumia to Mamprusi and Kusasi people

At least 200 people have been killed in the renewed Bawku conflict from November 2021 to August 2023, according to the MCE Amadu Hamza

The Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia has called on Mamprusi and Kusasi ethnic groups embroiled in the Bawku conflict to let peace prevail in the area.

At least 200 people have been killed in the renewed Bawku conflict from November 2021 to August 2023, the municipal chief executive (MCE) for the area, Amadu Hamza has said.

Bawumia believes the two factions, who are fundamentally one people, due to inter-marriages and similarity in language can live together in peace and harmony.

Bawumia made the call after he paid a courtesy call on Zugran Naba Asigri Abugrago Azorka II, the overlord of the Kusaug Traditional Area and his elders at his palace at Bawku in the Upper East Region.

“Yesterday, I visited Bawku, in the Upper East Region, and paid a courtesy call on Zugran Naba Asigri Abugrago Azorka II, overlord of the Kusaug Traditional Area and his elders at his palace.

“In our interactions, I appealed to Mamprusis and Kusasis embroiled in the Bawku conflict to let peace prevail so that they can live together as one people, for sustainable development to take place in the area.”

“It is indeed possible for Mamprusis and Kusasis in Bawku, who are fundamentally one people, due to inter-marriages and similarity in language, to live together in peace and harmony. I pledged my commitment to working together with all parties, towards achieving lasting peace for the good of the community and the people.” Bawumia wrote on Facebook.

Bawumia  was accompanied by the Minister for Interior Ambrosse Dery, Minister for Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs Stephen Asamoah-Boateng , Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection  Hajia Lariba Abudu, National Chairman of the NPP Stephen Ayesu Ntim and some regional executives.
