The overlord of Dagbon, Yaa Naa Mahama Abukari II, has expressed his profound appreciation to the chiefs and people as well as the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu for his tact, patience and wisdom in finding a lasting solution to the protracted violent conflict that bedeviled the Dagbon traditional area.

He, however, raised concerns about the delay and assumption of duty by the new Nanton Vonaa Mahama Bawa which he said is a threat to the peace process.

According to Yaa Naa Mahama Abukari II, the situation undermines his vested authority to enskin chiefs in his kingdom.

The Yaa Naa was speaking at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi when he led a retinue of chiefs from his kingdom to show gratitude to Otumfuo Osei Tutu.

Among the Yaa Naa’s retinue were the Yoo Naa, Naa Abdulai Yakubu Andani and the Mion Lana Naa Abdulai Mahama.

In a speech read by his Personal Assistant, Yaa Naa Mahama Abukari II attributed the restoration of peace in Dagbon to the commitment and perseverance of the Asantehene Committee in the face of entrenched positions by the factions.

However, the Yaa Naa had one major concern, which is the delay and assumption of duty by the new Nanton Vonaa Mahama Bawa.

The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu, assured the Yaa Naa of taking steps to address his concern.

He appealed to interested parties not to exploit the situation to the disadvantage of the peace of the traditional area.

Otumfuo Osei Tutu indicated that he will soon pay an official reciprocal visit to the Gbewa Palace as part of his goodwill for the peace of the Dagbon kingdom.

Meanwhile, the overlord of Dagbon, Yaa Naa Mahama Abukari II is scheduled to pay a similar visit to President Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House.

He is also billed to visit Akyem Abuakwa in the Eastern region to solidarize with the Okyenhene on the 20th anniversary of his enstoolment.
