Konkombas reaffirm commitment to peace
The President of Konkomba Development Association, Mr Daniel Bugri Naabu, has affirmed the commitment of Konkombas to access all peaceful channels to address their concerns in the Northern region.
Mr Bugri Naabu made the affirmation in a press statement in Accra, in reaction to a public statement purported to have been read by Vice President Alhaji Mahama during a Damba festival at the Mamprugu Traditional Area, which asked Konkombas to use laid down procedures to address their concerns.
The statement said Konkombas at Gbintiri in the East Mamprusi District followed established procedures to petition the Ministry of Local Government, Rural Development and Environment for the re-demarcation of the boundaries of the District for the people to be part of the Bunkpurugu-Yunyoo District.
It said: "Gbintiri was already part of the Bunkpurugu-Yunyoo Sub-District in the Second Republic. Konkombas thus exercised their franchise in the Bunkpurugu-Yunyoo Constituency."
The statement said the people of Gbintiri would enjoy accelerated development if they joined the Bunkpurugu-Yunyoo District.
