The Daily Graphic and the Ghanaian Times call on all to embrace peace for to accelerate socio-economic development. The papers are happy that after decades of protracted conflict, the path is now clear for the enskinment of a new Ya-Na for the people of Dagbon. The Graphic and Times laud the efforts of the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu and the Committee of Eminent Chiefs for their efforts over the years, and urge them to constantly engage stakeholders until a new Ya-Na is enskined to bring finality to the matter. While the Graphic implores government, the Ministry of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, the Peace Council and all peace-loving citizens especially those from Dagbon to provide the necessary support needed, the Times urge the feuding brothers to remain calm and trust that justice would be served at the end of the day.
