The Andani Royal family has withdrawn from the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II,led mediation committee.
Addressing a press conference today [Saturday] December 15, 2018, the family predicted the Otumfuo Osei Tutu led committee is preparing the grounds for confusion and crisis that would be worse than what has been encountered in the past.
The family has, therefore, vowed not to respectthe roadmap declaration by the committee to restore peace in Dagbon..
Announcing the decision at the press conference,the spokesperson for the Andani Royal gate Kpan-Naa Abubakari Andani alsoaccused the government of aiding the Abudu Family to create a parallelauthority in Dagbon by allowing the newly enskinned Regent of Abudu Family torefer to himself as Regent of Dagbon.
“We wonder how the Otumfuo and his committeehopes to make progress with the program they rolled out at the Flag Staff Housewhen major players around whom the program will revolve have been cynicallyignored in favor of a self-seeking rogue which has no legitimacy.”
“What, therefore, the Asantehene and the eminentchiefs have done is to shoot first and aim later. Regrettably, they have missedthe point and the entire program is destined to crumble like a vast hit by asledgehammer.”
Meanwhile, a new Dagbon regent has been installed.
The new regent Yaa Naa Mahamadu Abdulai IV, is under the skin name Bolin Lana.
He is now the acting overlord of Dagbon until December 28 when the funeral late overlord of Dagbon, Yaa Naa Mahamud Abdulai IV ends.
Bolin Lana Abdulai Mahamadu was born in 1974, the year his father was deskinned, and became the regent at age 14. He has four wives.
