Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has called for an end to all forms of violence in the country especially in Northern Ghana.
The Vice President who was speaking over the weekend at the funeral of the late Paramount Chief of Tempane, Moses Appiah Abari, said there is no need to fight and cause instability in any part of the country. He further urged the Chiefs and people of Chereponi in the Northern Region especially the Chokosis and Kokombas to cease fire and talk each other out of violence since it has the potential to further deepen the level of poverty in that part of the country.
The Vice President noted that the country’s greatest enemy is poverty and all efforts and energy should be channelled towards addressing the level of poverty in the country.
Dr. Bawumia eulogized the late Chief of Tempane Francis Abari, saying he was a young industrious chief who promoted peace, development. He pleaded with the overlord of the Bawku Traditional Area, Zugraan Abugragu Azoka II to help in maintaining peace in the area and ensure a peaceful selection of the next chief for Tempane.
On the plight of students of the Tempane Senior High School, which was recently in the news after the National Organizer of the NDC captured a derogatory video on students sleeping outside due to overcrowding, the Vice President indicated that he is aware of ongoing projects including a classrooms and a dormitory block to ease their burden.
Speaking on Behalf of the overlord of the Bawku Traditional Area, Zugraan Abugragu Azoka II, the Chief of Binaba, Moses Abari pledged the traditional council’s readiness to maintain the peace enjoyed in the Bawku Traditional Area and to ensure the smooth enskinment of the next chief of Tempane.
He also condemned saboteurs of the ongoing pilot of the Malaria vaccine in the country, urging people to embrace the vaccine since it will go a long way to save the lives of millions of children.
