The National democratic Congress (NDC) Volta Chapter wishes to congratulate the Awomefia of Anlo state on his appointment to mediate the Bimbilla chieftaincy dispute in the Northern region.
The Two royal gates - Dasana Andani family and Nakpaa Naa Dawuni family have been in an acrimonious and violent struggle over the rightful ruler of Bimbilla since 1994.
We believe with his rich experience serving as a member of the council of state under erstwhile former president Mahama's government puts him in a good stead to effectively function in his new assignment.
The national democratic congress, the people of the Volta region and the Anlo state wish him a successful mediation in bringing lasting peace to Bimbilla.
