He said peace and unity are important ingredients for development.
‘All the resources, energies and ideas will be directed at destroying each other instead of putting them together for the common good of all. Resources and time will be used in resolving the problems and maintaining peace and order using them to provide the much needed social amenities like water and sanitation facilities, school buildings, health facilities, markets and many others.’

‘I crave your indulgence to admit that the factions in the conflict confided in me to say kudos to Hon. Adam Imoro for displaying a high sense of maturity and neutrality in handling the situation. That, their unflinching believe and undoubted trust is what had convinced them to come this far in resolving the hitherto fragile situation. I also wish to thank members of REGSEC, DISEC and all who contributed in diverse ways to bringing an end to the conflict in the area and urge them to continue with their mediation process to ensure ever lasting peace to the area and other parts of the country to make Ghana one the most peaceful nations in the sub region and beyond.’
