Mahama congratulates new Ya Na

Former President John Dramani Mahama has congratulated the newly-nominated Overlord of Dagbon, Ya Na Abukari Mahama II, after selection processes by the kingmakers of Dagbon and due consultation of oracles in line with Dagbon customs and tradition.

Yo Na Abukari Mahama II was selected on Friday, 18 January 2019, after the Andani royal family ended the funeral rites of the late Ya Na Abdulai Yakubu Andani II.

In a Facebook Post on Saturday, 19 January 2019, Mr Mahama said: “Congratulations to Ya Na, Abukari Mahama II, and I pray for greater wisdom for you as you begin your reign.
Let’s continue to work together for lasting peace”.

Mr Mahama further expressed happiness that “after many years of hard work, negotiations, long meetings, disagreements, traditional considerations and agreements, we celebrate the efforts of successive governments for this day” as “Dagbon has finally seen peace”.

He further thanked the Committee of Eminent Chiefs led by the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei II for mediating and ensuring the restoration of peace to the troubled area.

Mr Mahama also expressed gratitude to the Andani and Abudu royal families of Dagbon for committing to the peace processes and roadmap presented by the committee.

Below is the full post.

So happy for this day, and we should be eternally grateful to Allah that Dagbon has finally seen peace.

After many years of hard work, negotiations, long meetings, disagreements, traditional considerations and agreements, we celebrate the efforts of successive governments for this day.

Working together, the Eminent Chiefs appointed to help resolve the very challenging Dagbon chieftaincy dispute, the Andani and Abudu Royal Families and the people of Ghana, this major success has been achieved and we have a new Yaa-Naa.

Congratulations to the two royal families and the Eminent Chiefs led by Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

Congratulations to Yaa-Naa, Abukari Mahama II, and I pray for greater wisdom for you as you begin your reign.

Let’s continue to work together for lasting peace.
