The people of Dagbon will today, Friday, 25 January 2019 outdoor their new king, Ya Na Abubakari Mahama II.
The investiture of the overlord is expected to bring to an end the protracted chieftaincy dispute.
Following the killing of the late Ya Na Yakubu Andani II in 2002, the John Agyekum Kufuor government set up a Committee of Eminent Chiefs led by the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to help find a solution to the crisis.
The committee in November 2018 presented a final road map for peace to President Nana Akufo-Addo. The road map also led to the successful performance of the funerals of Ya Na Abdulai and Ya Na Andani.
The kingmakers of Dagbon eventually selected Ya Na Abubakari Mahama II as the new overlord of the Dagbon traditional area.
Dignitaries expected to grace the outdooring of the new king include Nana Akufo-Addo, chiefs, Ministers of State and other high-ranking officials.
