Yagbonwura: Stakeholders must ensure peace throughout 2024 general elections

The Yagbonwura urged the Electoral Commission, security services and the National Peace Council to do their best to ensure a peaceful election

The King and Overlord of the Gonja Kingdom, who is also the president of the Savannah Regional House of Chiefs, Yagbonwura Bii-kunuto Jewu Soale I, is urging all stakeholders in the country to ensure that the 2024 general elections are conducted in a peaceful manner.

The King spoke through one of his subjects at the Jakpa Palace in Damongo when the former president and flagbearer for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC)John Dramani Mahama paid a courtesy call on him.

The king added, “This is an opportunity for all of us to demonstrate and contribute to the achievement of peace before, during and after the 7 December 2024 elections”.

“All stakeholders must do their part to protect the peace of this country that we all love. I will like to sound a warning of caution to the referee and that’s the (Electoral Commission), to the effect that they must remain neutral and work with both parties to ensure fairness in the elections.”

Yagbonwura Bii-kunuto noted that this is the first time in the history of elections in Ghana that the north will be at the centre of both the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

He said this is an opportunity to prove to the country and the rest of the world that Northerners are peace-loving people.

“A story must never be told that under the two Northern contenders, there was any form of conflict reported anywhere in the country,” Yagbonwura said.

He urged both the NPP’s Mahamudu Bawumia and the NDC’s John Dramani Mahama to carry their campaign messages with respect for each other and desist from personal attacks and insults.

Being a son of Gonjaland, Yagbonwura further noted that the entire Gonja Kingdom is behind him (John Dramani Mahama) as a proud son of the soil.

“We would always be proud of. Our ancestors are with you, the great Ndewura Jakpa’s warriors’s spirit is with you as you go around the length and breadth of the country to seek the people’s mandate again,” the King concluded.
