Former President Jerry Rawlings says this is the time for the people of Bawku to demand justice on the death of the Ya Na, as the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will not be in power forever.
Addressing the people of Bawku at the 26th Anniversary of the annual Samanpiid festival celebrated by Kusasis in the Kusaug traditional area of the Upper East Region, ex-President Rawlings questioned why the people of Bawku have gone quiet on the issue of the Ya Na.
According to him, it is wrong for the people of the Northern region to keep mute over the death of the late Ya Na Yakubu Andani II after President Mahama assumed office because “having a Northerner as President is the more reason why you should be insisting that we see justice.”
He reiterated that his reason for calling for justice for the Ya Na, is not because of the Ya Na but to ensure that the cause of justice is “treated with sanctity” adding that when justice is served, it will deter others from engaging in such acts.
He mentioned that “if we don’t get to the bottom of this issue … and also with the way we are performing, if we are not careful and we don’t ensure that a proper enquiry takes place to identify who did what? Ladies and gentlemen we will end up watching them and then they will show up again.”
