According to the former MP, the people of Bawku had in the past lived together in peace and harmony until the infiltration of some ranks by certain self-seeking groups and individuals.

Mr Daramani spoke to DAILY GUIDE after he met with some youth groups and some religious leaders in the Bawku Municipality.

He was very happy with the level of peace in the area and how new businesses were springing up in Bawku and its suburbs.

‘It feels good to be back home again and to be welcomed as a hero. I’m overwhelmed and I can feel the love my people have for me. I’m not surprise they still like me and prayed for me while I was away.’

Mr Daramani said he would continue to meet with various youth and women groups in the area to advise them on the need to remain calm and concentrate on their education and vocations and the development of the area.

‘Many of them have suffered and lost their livelihoods as a result of the instability that the Bawku Municipality experienced some time ago.

Today, the lives are getting better and so if you advise them against supporting any violent activity in the area, they will understand and will also be ambassadors of peace.’

Mr Daramani added his voice to calls to traders to be vigilant and monitor the movement of strange looking persons in the market and report any suspicious person or group of persons that would want to set fire to any of the markets in the area.
