The government must unconditionally apologize to the Mamprugu Traditional Council for the military’s efforts to detain the Manprugu chief and “new chief”
On Tuesday, February 21, 2023, they made the demand at a news conference that was attended by more than 20 council members, local kids, and supporters.
The only authorized enskinning authority for the Bawku Chieftaincy skin is the Mamprugu overlord “Nayiri,” according to the Paramount Chief of Gbankoni, Naba Lare Haruna Nasinmo II.
“We want a sincere apology that the Minister for Information’s remarks be taken back in the open. Government has the right to recognize anybody it wants. Whom our enskinned authorities recognize is what is important to us, he continued.
On the evening of February 19, armed soldiers stationed in Nalerigu fought with the youngsters of the community.
The troops’ effort came after a Bolgatanga High Court issued a warrant for the arrest of the two traditional leaders for their role in the chief’s enskinment.
The act is a breach of national security, according to a press release from the Information Ministry on February 15.
Ghananewsaid.net’s correspondent said that when the military forces arrived on Sunday night, they encountered furious town youngsters and were unable to make the arrest.
The traditional council denounced the incident at the news briefing on Tuesday.
The speaker continued, “I want this to be the last time that the government event disrespects our kingdom in this way.
The administration could rely on prominent chiefs to conduct media negotiations, according to James Agalga, ranking member of the Parliament’s Defence and Interior Committee.
