The new overlord of Dagbon, Ya-Naa Abukari Mahama II has received a customized Jaguar solon car from President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo according to reports on Mynewsgh.com.
It is gathered that the brand new vehicle was towed to Yendi to be donated to the chief who has officially been outdoored to begin his duties in accordance with customs and tradition of the area.
Ya-Naa Abukari Mahama II coronation which took place at the forecourt of the Gbewaa Palace in Yendi, makes him the 42nd Ya-Naa with a promise to champion development on behalf of residents of Dagbon.
In a speech read for him, he rallied support from both factions to deliver on his mandate and promise to be impartial in the discharge of his duties as required.
President Nana Addo’s dressing to Ya-Naa’s coronation has gone viral on the Ghanaian social media landscape. The first gentle-man of the land was seen rocking a Batakari with a welton boot.
Nana Addo has received accolades for completing a long-standing arbitration process in Dagbon, one of the traditional kingdoms in Ghana.
What was missing, though, is a headgear that usually accompanies such royal outfits. He received cheers from the gathering as he made his way to the venue, near the Naa Gbewaa Palace.
