Alban Bagbin, the Speaker of Parliament, has asked the Ministers of Defence and National Security to come before Parliament’s Defence and Interior Committee on Thursday morning.
The two ministers in charge of national security have been summoned to present an update on the government’s efforts to prevent a clash between the Mo and Wangara tribes in Kintampo North municipality.
Joseph Kwame Kumah, a Member of Parliament, expressed concern over tensions with the Mo tribe over the Mo tribe’s request to perform rituals during November and December, coinciding with the Wangara community’s Klubi festival.
The Speaker summoned the ministers and asked the government to take immediate steps to address the situation in the area.
“As the first authorities to come to this house to brief the committee on Defense and Interior, this is an urgent matter that should be handled with dispatch. I think tomorrow should be okay for the two ministers and their commanders to appear before the committee early tomorrow morning by 9 am to brief the committee. It is an urgent matter.”
“The National Security Council through their regional office should immediately intervene because the chieftaincy institution is one of the cornerstones of the peace and security of our country, and we hold that institution dearly. We will do everything to prevent that institution from falling into disarray,” he added.
