Savannah Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party, NPP, Sulemana Iddrisu has made a passionate plea to the people of the region to refrain from turning it into a hotbed of violence and tension under the guise of attending funerals.

Mr. Sulemana emphasized the importance of maintaining unity and peace among the sons and daughters of the region, regardless of their political affiliations. He highlighted an incident that occurred during the final funeral rites of the late Queen mother of Busunu, Busunuwuriche Azara Seidu, where clashes erupted between supporters of the NPP and NDC, requiring security personnel to intervene.

Prominent political figures from both sides were present at the funeral, including former President John Dramani Mahama, the Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema-Opare, and other high-ranking officials. Mr. Sulemana recounted another similar incident during the seventh-day funeral rites of the late Yagbonwura, Tuntumba Sulemana Bore Essa II, where he personally intervened to restore peace.
