Mion-Lana Abdulai Mahamadu outdoored

The first son of the late Yaa-Naa Mahamadu Abdulai IV is now the Mion-Lana effective Sunday March 3, 2019.

Yaa-Naa Abukari Mahama II officially enskinned him at the Old Gbewaa Palace in Yendi.

This followed the earlier enskinment of the former Regent of Dagbang, the Kampakuya-Naa as Yoo-Naa Abdulai Yakubu Andani.

The Northern Regional Minister, Salifu Sae-ed among others witnessed the investiture.

It attracted people from all over Dagbon and beyond who in an interview described the Yaa-Naa Abukari Mahama II as a unifier.

As the major appointed cabinet members of the Dagbon Traditional Council, the Yoo-Naa and his brother the Mion-Lana are expected to flank the King of Dagbon at Ghana's 62nd Independence Anniversary in Tamale at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium.

The two of them are qualified to succeed the Yaa-Naa in line with the rotation system of the Dagbang Namship.

The then Boling-Lana Mahamadu Abdulai is the first surviving son of late Yaa- Naa Mahamadu Abdulai IV.

He was born in 1974 when his father was facing political and uncustomary machinations from his detractors.

He became the Boling-Lana at the age of 14, a day after Yaa-Naa Mahamadu Abdulai IV was laid to rest at the Katini duu.

He was in SDA Primary School in Tamale when his father died.

He has since been the Regent of his later father for 30 years now.

Currently, the Mion-Lana Abdulai Mahamudu has four wives and twelve children.

He was installed as the new Regent of Dagbon, Friday December 14, 2018.

The installation formed an integral part of activities lined up for the performance of the funeral of the Yaa-Naa Mahamadu Abdulai IV.

People from all walks of life including Ministers of State, Chief Executive Officers of State agencies, Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives, Chiefs, the Clergy, family relations and well-wishers were there.
