Kuoro Buktie Liman, the Paramount Chief of the Gwollu Traditional Council, appealed to communities in the area to follow laid down procedures in the selection of successors anytime a chief passes on to avoid conflict.

He lauded the Kusali community for presenting a successor to replace the former chief of Kusali during the funeral of the late chief Alhassan Gbene Babaaniwi III.

He stressed the importance of keeping to the traditional mode of succession anytime a chief passed on and was grateful to the community for the show of unity in identifying a successor peacefully.
