Speaking exclusively to Bole based Nkilgi fm, the President of the Gonjaland Youth Association Lawyer Mohammed Amin Osman said their visit to the Bolewura’s Palace is to officially inform the Bolewura and his sub-Chiefs and Queen Mothers about the review of constitution as the current constitution is outdated.

He said Gonjaland has many people who have interest in the review of the 1930 constitution and for that matter they came to meet the Bolewura and to form a local committee and that the committee will be feeding the review committee with information on.tbe history nd customs of the Bole Traditional.

He said the review committee can not do their work without the involvement of the local people and that they must tell their story and history for all to be put together to form one document.

Lawyer Mohammed Amin Osman added that the committee can not sit on their own to write anything about Bole because no one can tell the story about Bole than the people of Bole.
