Yaa Naa killing lowest point in Kufour’s govt- Kwadwo Mpiani
Former Chief of Staff to EX-President John Agyekum Kufour, Kwadwo Mpiani says the gruesome murder of the Overlord of Dagbon Yaa Naa Yakubu Andani II remains the lowest event during the regime of the Ex-Ghanaian Leader.
According to him, apart from the sad nature of the killing of the paramout traditional ruler, the unexpected event took place at the time some persons from the late Yaa Naa’s territory were occupying top hierarchy of the security architecture.
Naa Yakubu Andani II (1945–2002) was the King of Dagbon, the traditional kingdom of the Dagomba indigenes in Northern Ghana, from 31 May 1974 until his killing on 27 March 2002.
He was brought into the world in August 1945 in Sagnarigu, a suburb of Tamale in the Northern Region of Ghana. Yakubu II was killed on 27 March 2002 at Yendi, the capital of the Kingdom of Dagbon, by alledged allies of Abudu Royal Family when conflicts broke out between the two fighting Gates of Dagbon Kingship.
For a very long time the Abudu and Andani families, named after two children of the old Dagbon King Ya Naa Yakubu I, took control of the kingdom located in Yendi, 530 kilometers (330 mi) North of Accra, the capital of Ghana.
As of January 2014, an official (introduced in 2006) has gone about as sovereign of the realm until another ruler is picked to possess the adored Lion Skins of Yendi.
Speaking in an interview monitored by African Editors in Accra, the former Chief of staff Kwadwo Mpiani said “For me, the lowest point during Kufour’s government was the killing of the Yaa Naa particularly when some of the people from his region were holding top security positions”.
“I want Akufo-Addo to fix attitudinal change and indiscipline in his government”.
