DAGBON YOUTH FIGHT TO KEEP CHEREPONI OUT OF NEW REGION

            
      

The
youth of Dagbon in the Northern Region have hit the streets to protest
the inclusion of Chereponi District in the proposed North East Region.
Spokesperson of the Dagbon youth, Mubarak Osman, told reporters that, the youth and the Dagbon Traditional Council are highly opposed to the move.
“The
request by the Nayiri that Chereponi [currently under Dagbon
traditional council] should be released to be part of the new region was
openly opposed to by the Dabon traditional council when they met in
Yendi,” he told reporters.
According to Mubarak Osman, a letter from the Overlord
of Mamprugu, under whose jurisdiction the Chereponi District will come
to be if the re-demarcation is completed, stating 
that Chereponi District will still be recognised a land under the Dagbon traditional council is not convincing
According to Osman, the youth do not have the assurance from Naa Bohagu Abdulai Mahama Sheriga that Chereponi District will still be under the jurisdiction of the Dagbon overlords.

He
further explained that Bolgatanga is part of the lands Mamprugu lost
while the Gonjas also lost some of their lands when the Brong Ahafo
Region was created, fearing that history will be repeated.
