Senior Minister commended for reconciliation efforts
The Bimobas Union in the Brong Ahafo Region has commended Mr J.H. Mensah, Senior Minister, for leading a reconciliation team to settle the conflict between the Puris and Tanmungs in Bimbagu, near Bunkpurugu, in the Northern Region.
This was after Mr David Drahamani Yaro, Techiman District Co-ordinating Director, had briefed members on the successful outcome of the reconciliation exercise in Accra, at a general meeting at Techiman at the weekend.
They said the resolution of the conflict was a great relief to them, "since the conflict was turning back the clock of development of the area" and urged the two clans to respect the peace brokered at Bimbagu and sealed in Accra. Mr Yaro who was the Chairman of the Reconciliation Committee asked them to unite for the development of the area and urged them to use dialogue to settle differences.
Mr David Sambique, Vice Chairman of the Union, thanked Mr Yaro, the MP for Bunkpurugu-Yunyuo, Mr Lambum Berrick, the DCE for the area, Mr D.D. Konlan and the Paramount Chief of Bunkpurugu, Lanbon Tapang, for their roles in solving the conflict. The Union called for the creation of a District for the Bimoba area and the rehabilitation of the 15-kilometre road from Najung Number One to Bunkpurugu.
