The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his vice ,Dr. Bawumia will on Friday, 25th January, 2019 lead a powerful degelation to the coronation of the New Ya Naa in Yendi.
The Vice President had earlier attended the funerals of Naa Mahamadu VI and Naa Yakubu Andani II.
President Akufo-Addo, under whose administration this important milestone has been chalked, has already been described by the head of the eminent Kings, Otumfuo Osei Tutu as being very lucky as all previous governments tried to bring peace to Dagbon but was inconclusive.
The kingmakers of Dagbon led by the Kuga Naa Adam Abdulai, on Friday, 18th January, 2019 confirmed Yo-Na Abubakari Mahama, as the new Ya-Naa -elect for the traditional area.
Yoo Naa Abubakari Mahama who is the paramount chief of Savelugu was selected after the successful final funeral rites of the late Ya-Naa Yakubu Andani II.
A protracted chieftaincy dispute between the Abudus and Andanis following the murder of Ya-Naa Yakubu Andani II in March 2002, has left the skin vacant for 17 years.
