The ongoing succession conflict in Nanun is a replica of what consistently happens during interregnums since 1964. Sometimes, the contention is resolved amicably; sometimes it is prolonged. The flexibility of the rules of succession makes it possible for individuals and groups such as politicians to manipulate the system. This and other factors, such as generational qualification, economic interest etc, make the situation more complex resulting sometimes in warfare. This book explores these factors and the nature of chieftaincy in Nanun and the rules that regulate succession to high political offices, especially at the paramountcy level. It further suggests ways of dealing with the issue of succession conflict in order to prevent future occurrence. The book concludes with the observation that despite the numerous conflicts that have bedeviled the chieftaincy institution, the institution is still valid and highly respected.
