The former Member of Parliament for Manhyia North, Collins Owusu Amankwah has asked residents in Bawku to put a stop to their crisis.
The former legislator said the renewed crisis on Bawku was worrying and disgusting.
The former MP says the resources spent in maintaining law and order in Bawku could be used to develop the area.
He made the call during an interview on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm.
He said the residents must cooperate with the government to bring peace to the area.
He believes the people must see themselves as one and stop fighting.
He said the resources used in ensuring in Bawku could be used to develop the place. I am appealing to the people to unite. Enough is enough. The residents must stop fighting.
The bottom line is most of these terrorist activities depend on areas where there is instability so they can capitalize on it. That is why I am asking the residents to see themselves as Ghanaians with a common destiny,” he added.
Recent tensions in Bawku have led to the death of several persons and others wounded.
The tensions can be traced to December 27, 2021, when there was gunfire in parts of the town after attempts to perform the final funeral rites of a Chief who died about 41 years ago.
There is currently a curfew placed on the township.
