The custodians of Dagbon traditions led by the Gushei Naa and Kugnaa have nominated the Chief of Savulugu to succeed the late Ya Naa Yakubu Andani II who died in 2002. The Chief of Savulugu, Yoo Naa Abubakar is the head of the Andani Royal family in Dagbon.

The nomination is in line with the customs and traditions in respect of succession to the Kingship of Dagbon.

The Chairman of Andani Youth Association, Alhaji Abdulai Anas who revealed this to the savannanews24.com added that, the coronation of t the new Ya-Na has since began in line with customs and traditions.

The decision of the traditional selection committee is also in line with the Dagbon constitution of 1930 and the Supreme Court decision of December 1986.

The Supreme Court in 1986 ordered that only occupants of the gate skins of Mion, Karaga and Savulugu are eligible to contest for the Kingship of Dagbon. The Supreme Court decision also barred regents of deceased Ya Naa’s from contesting for the nam of Yendi.

Dagbon has been engulfed in protracted chieftaincy dispute which had claimed several lives and destroyed properties.

The Government of President Kufour constituted the Otumfou committee of Eminent Chiefs to employ customary mechanisms to resolve the problem.

The committee finally managed to get the Abudu and Andani royal families to commit to the roadmap to peace in Dagbon. This has led to the performance of the funeral rites of the late Ya Naas, Naa Mahamadu Abdulai and Naa Yakubu Andani.
