Titus Glover admitted in an interview with Johnnie Hughes on 3FM Sunrise Morning Show that it is a fact that in Bawku, the Mamprusies support NPP and the Kusaasies support NDC but insisted that the Bawku conflict is never a political fight hence people should desist from describing it as such.
“Who can say or prove that a politician is behind this conflict? I want to know all the research data that has been done that politicians are behind this conflict. Our side, the NPP, we don’t do that. What benefit will it benefit anybody because a Kusaase cannot go to Mamprugu to go and campaign, and a Mamprugu cannot go to a Kusaase area and campaign?” he inquired
Titus Glover noted that the age long Bawku conflict has retard the progress and development of the town which used to be vibrant with economic activities. He also mentioned that the Bawku branch of the Ghana Commercial Bank has been closed down which means government salary workers who are paid through the bank will have difficulty accessing their salaries.
Other institutions of state including the municipal assembly are shut down whereas academic activities have also ceased due to the insecurity in Bawku.
Though the former legislator argued that politicians are not the people behind the conflict, he mentioned he has heard that some people are benefiting from the Bawku conflict while people are losing their lives, and properties are being destroyed whereas the government has to spend a lot of taxpayers money to send security officers and accoutrement over there to maintain peace.
“Apart from the two great tribes who have these conflicts, there is an element of criminality involved because I listened to the interior minister on the floor of parliament last week” he alluded
