The government on Wednesday said it had no intention of interfering with the work of the Wuaku Commission, probing the Yendi crisis in which Ya-Na Yakubu Andani II was assassinated.

It said "it would be improper and inappropriate for any person or institution, including the government to interfere with, disrupt or act in any manner, which would appear to subvert or obstruct the Commission in its work, adding that it would await the final report of the Commission and thereafter take appropriate action.

A statement signed by Papa Owusu-Ankomah, Acting Minister of Information and Presidential Affairs, therefore, advised the Andanis to rescind the decision to boycott the Commission and to continue to co-operate with it as they had done all through its proceedings.

It noted that the Commission had so far provided all factions ample opportunity to provide any information relevant to its work, adding that any of the faction in the crisis that intended to present any complaint on the work of the Commission should await the final report before doing so.

The Andani faction on Monday decided not to co-operate with the Commission without stating any specific reasons after it had received evidence from 104 witnesses and was at the very final stages of retiring to prepare its report for submission to government.

The statement said the Wuaku Commission was established by a Legislative Instrument, which vested the Commission with the full authority of a Superior Court of Justice with the sole purpose of establishing the facts, which led to the unfortunate events in Dagbon Traditional area.
