The Busunu Youth for Development in the Damongo Constituency of the Savannah Region has on Saturday March 30 2024 organise an Inter-political party dialogue ahead of the 2024 general election under the theme: ‘The role of the Youth as champions of Peaceful elections’ in Busunu, Savannah Region of Ghana.

The name of Busunu has in recent days been in the news for the bad reasons due to the Youth’s engagement in political chaos and vandalism during the final funeral rites of the late Queen mother of the area among others.

Many of the youth from all the political parties including opinion leaders, chiefs and elders of the area took part in the one day forum which at the end brought unity among the rank and file of youth.

Mr John Ndodu Adoshi; the Deputy Constituency Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in a speach prayed for peace and tasked the Busunu Traditional Council to be bold in hitting the nail on the head of politicians who uses the innocent and unemployed youth to perpetrate conflict to satisfying their parochial interest. Mr. John also suggested that, leadership of political parties must conjointly work to foster unity in the community.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Deputy Organiser for the Damongo Constituency Mr. Baba Wahab bemoaned the causes of the conflicts that unraveled the Community in recent times.
He explained that, peace and tolerance are key ingredients of development, and their absence would cause the community more harm than good; stressing that being tolerant and respect for elders will help shake off the shackles of political conflict in Busunu.

Busing people from the surrounding villages by politicians to social-cultural programs, hypocrisy by some political leaders, scheduling of political activities by both parties on the same day and engaging in politics of insults were bulleted as some of the main causes of the chaos in the Community.

The Assemblyman for the Busunu Electoral Area, Hon. Dari Osman Thomas therefore, pleaded with the major political parties to shy away from situation that can hinder development. He also promised to organise more of such strategic programs, that will aid in eliminating the canker forever.
