Earlier today, a delegation of Konkomba Chiefs paid a courtesy call on the overlord of Dagbang, Yaa Naa Mahama Abubakari II, at the Gbewaa Palace in Yendi.
The delegation led by the paramount chief of Saboba traditional area, Uchabobor-Bowan Mateer John Sakojim, visited the King to reaffirm their allegiance to the Dagbang Skin and to express their commitment to the long and outstanding peaceful coexistence between the different ethnic groups in the Northern Region.
There has been tension recently as war mongers throw audios and videos recordings on social media to indicate an impending attack on Dagombas and other ethnicities especially in the Eastern corridor area.
The situation had become much of a concern that the Defence Minister, a week ago, led a delegation to prominent Kings in the Northern Region to inform them that the matter had been taken up by National security and any war monger will not be spared.
During the visit of the Konkomba traditional rulers, their leader, Chief of Saboba, Mathew John Sakojim, told the Yaa Naa that the delegation he had led to the Gbewaa Palace were traditional mouthpiece of all Kokombas and that they were there to inform him that they were not planning any war on the Kingdom.
He said for them, their concern was to wage war against poverty and under development as those are the challenges that seriously are threatening the lives of the people.
Yaa Naa Mahama Abubakari II, on his part, thanked the delegation for their visit and also reiterated the call that rather than take up arms to fight each other, the two tribes should rather fight poverty, diseases, illiteracy and all other factors that threaten the progress of the people.
He indicated that Dagbang Kingdom was not only for Dagombas but for Konkombas, Basaris, Chekosis and Nanumbas, noting that any tribe that had any grievance needs to bring it to the fore for deliberations as to how the grievance can be resolved.
