Following the untimely demise of the late Tulwewura Mahama Bunyanso on the 5th of March 2020, tradition demands that after all funeral rites are rightly performed including the 12th day rites which is usually performed by the successor to the skin.
It is required that immediate steps are initiated to get the next chief enskined since it is traditionally inappropriate to leave the skins of a whole paramountcy vacant for a long period. Led by Jarang Wura without any protest from the people of Tulwe, Bundawura Soale at the Jakpa palace was presented to Yagbon wura Professor Tuntumba Boresah who subsequently nominated him as the next to ascend the Tulwe Skins.
Hon. Salifu Adam Braimah, the Savannah Regional Minister paid a courtesy call on the Tulwe Wura elect ahead of his enkinment on Tuesday 21st April 2020 at his residence in Chama in the Tulwe traditional area to congratulate him on his nomination and also assure him of his preparedness to work with him towards the development of the Tulwe traditional area. The minister in a short statement made reference to how Savannians/Gonjalanders have allowed greed and disregard for tradition to mar our carefully structured system of transition which in reality have been adopted by other ethnic groups.
However, the Minister hinted that the indicators are somewhat positive, drawing inspirations from Busunu traditional area and how the nomination and subsequent enkinment of Busunuwura was carried out. “I am delighted today because Tulwe has also exhibited that sense of maturity and utmost respect for tradition and I know that with the support of the King of Gonjaland and his committee of eminent chiefs we shall reclaim our lost image” says the minister.
Hon. Salifu Adam Braimah on behalf of the Savannah Regional Coordinating Council presented bags of maize, rice, a gallon of cooking oil and undisclosed amount of money to the successor (Bundawura Sole).
Hon. Salifu Adam Braimah promised to put an eye on the contractor who is currently working on the Tulwe road to ensure that the road will soon be motorable.
The Chief in return thanked minister and his team which includes, the deputy Regional minister Hon. Samuel Yeyu Tika, The DCE for Central Gonja Hon. Mahama Mustapha and the Regional police Commander DCOP Bediako.
