The three main sectors of Ghana are experiencing conflict in our dear Nation Ghana. The Northern, Southern and the Middle belts.
Our Traditional leaders in the Northern part of the country are fighting over who must occupy the lion skin at Dagbon, a skin which has been rotated over 600 years between the Andani’s and the Abudu gates.
Not to re visit the taboo days of our past, the Asantehene Otumfuor Osei Tutu II and the President of the Republic of Ghana moved in for a reconciliation in March 2014 but it seems not yielded the expected outcome.
Down to the Southern part of the Country, the Nkunaya and the Alavanyor in the Volta Region have been fighting over a boundary since 1923.
In the year 2013 however, the former Minister for the Volta Region, Nii Affotey Agbo discovered that the Nkunaya and Alavanyor fight is more than boundary dispute but the issue has to do with lumbering.( logging or felling of trees.)
The searchlight is on the middle belt of the Nation Ghana where “Zongo”or Muslims and non Muslims are fighting each other for a piece of land in the Tafo Traditional area of the Ashanti Region.
Whiles citizens of Totope in the Ada East District and other Communities in Ghana are struggling to get even the untreated water to drink, Chieftaincy, Religion and land grabbing disputes rather takes more resources from the basket of the Government thereby worsening the living conditions of the people.
