Former President John Dramani Mahama has called for calm in Bole in the Savanna Region, following Wednesday’s clashes.
The clash, which was caused by a chieftaincy dispute, led to the destruction of property including; houses and vehicles.
In a statement issued by his office on Thursday, Mr Mahama who is also the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Flagbearer, called on the Bole chieftaincy factions to cooperate with the mediation committee established by the Gonja Traditional Council to work quickly towards resolving the dispute.
“We need peace to guarantee the safety of all in Bole. Any disruption of the peace will affect not only the protagonists, but the children and women in particular,” he noted.
Mr. Mahama also noted that the sad development in Bole was not a good signal to send after the newly and recently inaugurated Savanna Region.
“Let us cooperate with the authorities and security services to ensure peace and development of the area,” he added.
