Report reaching GBC’s Radio Ghana indicates that the final funeral rites for the late overlord of Dagbon, Ya-Naa Abdulai Yakubu Andani which was to begin January 4 has been put on hold by the Andani royal family over fresh disagreement between them and the Abudu family.
The Spokesperson in charge of Publicity Committee for the Andani Family, Basharu Dabali, confirmed this to GBC’s Regional correspondent Joyce Kantam Kolamong in Tamale.
According to him, at a meeting with the Asantehene Otumfuor Osei Tutu in Kumasi this week to announce their readiness to the Chief Mediator in the Dagbon conflict, the Andanis requested the Asantehene to intervene to get the issue resolved.
However, Mr. Dabali indicated that the issue has still not been resolved as of Thursday compelling the Andani family to hold a family meeting and subsequently fixing January 11, 2019 as the new date for the performance of the funeral rites.
He said the family will convey an official confirmation through some chiefs to inform the entire Andani family members and their sympathizers on the new dates.
Mr Dabali revealed that the family will use one week to perform the funeral rites of the late Ya-Na Abdulai Yakubu Andani because the late Ya –Na”s regent has already been installed.
