The Konkomba Youth Association (KOYA) has rejected invitation to attend the Dagbon Constitutional Review Conference, saying that the constitution is targeted at recolonizing Konkombas.
“KOYA cannot and will not attend any conference to review a constitution targeted at dividing and recolonizing Konkombas in the 21st century” a letter addressed to the Chairman of the Dagbon Constitutional Review Committee read.
The letter, dated 23rd October, 2021 and signed by Nagbija Elvis Poliyeh claimed the division of Konkombas into clans in the draft is deliberate and intriguing, questioning why same was not done to Dagombas.
KOYA added that “the 1930 Constitution is a Dagomba constitution and as such, is Dagomba driven.
The Konkomba Youth Association (KOYA) is a Konkomba front and will have nothing to do with any Dagomba constitution targeted at exsanguinating Konkombas”.
It said KOYA will not be part of a “knee-jerk” invitation to discuss self-seeking constitution “that tends to ignite peril in future”.
Below is the full statement.
