The leader of the Zongo Chiefs council the Mohi-Naa, who was represented by the Sanaaba, Jaisiwuni Isshaku said the entire Zongo communities in Dagbon are very happy that peace has returned to the area after a long wait.
He said the non-indigenes of Dagbon feel more threatened anytime there is insecurity because they have no place to relocate with their families and businesses. He appealed to the Yaa Naa to build bridges between the two royal families to ensure that there is only Gbewaa family in Dagbon.

Ya Na Abukari Mahama Gariba II also cautioned people who speak on radio and TV to be mindful of their choice of words.
Misguided and wanton statements, the Dagbon King noted can deny the Dagbon kingdom its share of the national cake and scared away investors.
