A former Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Bawku, Musah Abdulai, has blamed the unrest in Bawku on the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to Musah Abdulai, the NPP is the root cause of the Bawku conflict and that it resurfaces anytime the party assumes office.
He made these statements during the durbar of chiefs and people of the Kusaug Traditional Area in Bawku. He pointed out that during the reign of former President Jerry John Rawlings PNDC/NDC governments, there was nothing like violence in Bawku until the year 2000 when NPP won the general elections.
He said the conflict got out of hand around 2007 to 2008 until the NPP left power.
In 2009, Musah Abdulai was appointed MCE for Bawku and by 2010 the conflict was brought under control.
He said peace returned from that time to 2016 and the NDC left power. After NPP resumed power, another violence erupted again in 2021 and it has continued until now.
He, therefore, called on the residents of Bawku to vote for NDC to give way for peace to return to Bawku again.
