    Anglican Communion News Service. Make no Dagbon in crisis book, both the Andanis and Abudus, descendants of blood relatives, suffered considerable loss of lives in the widely reported carnage that occurred in Yendi some twelve years ago, as credibly indicated by evidence gathered by the Wuaku Commission of investigators. A pathologist from the 37 Military Hospital confirmed that the body of Yaa-Naa Yakubu II is incomplete; his head, a hand or a foot were detached from the rest of his body. A witness against him in court revealed he continuously lambasted the Yaa-Naa for being an arrogant person by refusing to flee his Palace and got himself killed as a result.

    This would involve the planting of 2. It was without doubt the failure of the Rawlings and Kufour governments to recognise that leaving Dagbon politics to court intrigue and the legalistic argumentation of Dagbon in crisis book court scholars have never resolved the vexed and ancient quarrels of the royal succession among the Dagbamba. It was a great calamity. But that is for next week, next month, and the year hereafter. There is but one Yaa Naa. Rawlings has mischievously thumbed his nose at the people of Dagbon by claiming to have in his possession forensically sustainable evidence to facilitate the speedy conviction of the alleged criminal suspects.

    Mills serves no purpose at all in building bridges between the two feuding factions- the Abudus and Andanis. The Dagbon in crisis book started at Nakpayiliin the Nanumba traditional area, and spread to the Dagomba and Gonja traditional areas. After trying to accommodate the infinite intrigues, cultural intricasies, and machinations of Dagbon gate politics, Osagyefo resorted to fiat. When the Germans arrived on the scene inthey found a kingdom wracked by princely distrust. The program expanded to cover twenty districts in Northern Ghana and has since benefited overchildren who would otherwise have had no access to education. Abubakari Alhassanhe appealed to the Danish government for some support.

Speaking to the media in Accra, the spokesperson for the government Transition Team, Ms Hannah Tetteh Kpodah intimated that, the Atta Mills led administration would Dagbon in crisis book renege on its campaign promise to bring justice and lasting peace to the Dagbon traditional area.

The Yaa-Naa commended the Asantehene-led Committee of Eminent Chiefs, set up in to help bring finality to the decades-old conflict between the Abudu and Andani Royal families in Dagbon.

There has been crisis in Dagbon — which was once a beacon of peace and stability in the Northern Region — over the last decade. On the latter score, the key operatives of the ruling National Democratic Congress appear to the more guilty.

The Bolin Lana and major Abudu princes had begun to resort to honouring divisions not seen in Dagbon since the days of the Anglo-German struggle for control.

In the end, though, making the local and indigenous government of Dagbon work effectively towards the development of the region and its people, ought to be the greatest and most memorable tribute that the two royal gates Dagbon in crisis book pay Ya-Na Dagbon in crisis book Andani II, as well as the most lasting memorial to those who brutally perished with him.

His ankadi will bind the rain, dry the muskets of his chomfo nima and cherlan nima, and the Lunsi knows to sing his tributes from that sacred hour, when the Guma Naa cooks the holy yams to pacify the royal lips. A typical example of the latter, of course, was the shockingly schlocky manner in which dubious suspects were rounded up for the just-ended Ya-Na Yakubu Anadani II judicial circus.

In response to this, the Ghana Danish community, which eventually developed a Non-governmental organisation called School for Life, was established in Plans to set up a university in northern Ghana had been planned since the regime of General Ignatius Kutu Acheampong —but had never been implemented.

Even before the British intervened, however, new strains on the Dagbon polity had emerged in the form of the Zabarim, a group of Muslim mercenaries and caravan runners whose presence was growing rapidly in Karaga.

British dominion was now absolute to the point where several subordinate skins were appointed directly through the intervention of district commissioners. He was bombarded with firepower and grenades by the armed assassins till his bodyguards and brave young men in his household who swore to protect him were all taken out.

His request was granted and the river was bridged. And certainly not the Kampakuya Naa, the Andani Regent. The assurance by the government follows a petition by an Accra based Andani Youth Group asking President Mills to intervene and speed up the resolution of the protracted Dagbon chieftaincy dispute.

The Asantehene advised all chiefs in Dagbon to respect the authority of the Yaa-Naa as the supreme leader and the one with authority to enskin chiefs to vacant skins.

It was a great calamity. Retrieved 1 May Eyewitnesses say they numbered around 50 and were armed with sub-machine guns, rifles, and hand grenades. Dagbon citizens who occupied prominent government positions were inescapably caught up in the dispute.
