Bawumia: Chieftaincy-related issues affect Ghana’s security

Bawumia Chieftaincy related issues affect Ghanas security

Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has expressed his concern over the impact of chieftaincy-related issues on Ghana’s security and development. He made this remark when he met with the traditional leaders and people of the Upper East Region in Bolgatanga.

He said that chieftaincy-related issues have been draining the government’s scarce resources that could have been used for other essential development projects.

He stressed the need for more collaboration to prevent and control conflicts, especially in the northern part of the country where they are more vulnerable to external threats from across the border with Burkina Faso.

He added that the government is committed to ensuring inclusive development in Ghana, so that everyone feels part of the country’s progress. He said that when people are excluded, they are more likely to be influenced by extremist ideas.

He also assured the traditional leaders of the government’s continued support for the chieftaincy institution, which he said is highly respected by the NPP and its tradition. He cited the examples of how the NPP governments under Presidents J.A. Kufuor and Akufo-Addo created the Ministry for Chieftaincy and enacted all the legislative frameworks for the institution.
