November 2010: - Press Release (Ghana) APPEAL FOR RETURN TO THE ROADMAP TO PEACE IN DAGBON

APPEAL FOR RETURN TO THE ROADMAP TO PEACE IN DAGBON

The Ghana Network for Peacebuilding, GHANEP (WANEP-Ghana) has observed with deep concern the current stall in ensuring the success of the roadmap to peace in Dagbon. The recent withdrawal of the Abudu Gate from participating in the Asantehene-led Eminent Chiefs’ mediation process is a source of worry for all and has the greater potential to derail the peace process for Dagbon especially when an adjudication process is also ongoing.

Our concern is premised on our monitoring of the dynamics in the Dagbon communities in the midst of court trials on issues of criminality, the Eminent Chiefs’ process, the relationship that exist between the court trials and the Eminent Chiefs process, and the tendency for heightened tensions as a result of the withdrawal by the Abudus from the mediation table that may pose greater challenges in maintaining the current stability and achieving lasting peace for Dagbon.

The use of such language is further exacerbating political polarisation and increasing social tensions. Our concern is premised on a careful observation of the implicit negative consequences that transforms the undercurrents of politics into a front for social mobilisation along regional and/or possible ethnic cleavages. ..........
