Buipewura Jinapor II promises President Akufo Addo that the late Yagbonwura will be replaced smoothly

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has received assurances from the Buipewura, Mahama Abdulai Jinapor II, that finding a replacement for the late Yagbonwura will be successful because the Gonja traditional system has a calm and efficient procedure for doing so.

The overlord of the Gonja Kingdom, Yagbonwura Prof. Tuntumba Boresa I, who passed away on February 5, 2023 at the age of 90, would be succeeded by a peaceful transition, according to him, using the established method of chieftaincy succession for the region, which has been a time-honored tradition.

When the Yagbonwura, who was also the President of the Savanna Regional House of Chiefs, passed away, the Buipewura, who is also the Vice-President of the Savanna House of Chiefs, offered the assurance in a speech read on his behalf by the Registrar of the House, Abutu Kapori. This occurred yesterday at the Jubilee House. Yagbonwura Tuntumba Boresa I had twelve years as king. He held the position of Paramount Chief of the Kusawgu Traditional Region of Gonja prior to his enskinment. His skin name was Kusawguwura Sulemana Jakpa.

The late chief, who cherished peace, served his people and his country well, according to the Buipewura.He was one of the three distinguished leaders who helped end the Dagbon issue in a way that would last. According to Mr. Kapori, the Yagbonwura was interred at the royal mausoleum on February 6, 2023, in accordance with Gonja custom and tradition. For the seventh day Adua on February 25 and 26, 2023, he has formally invited the President.

The passing of Yagbonwura Boresa was characterised as sad news by President Akufo-Addo because he was a responsible chief who went above and beyond to help him establish effective government for the nation. He stated that he had a special fondness for the Yagbonwura because of the contribution he played in resolving the Dagbon problem and the work he did to maintain peace in his own traditional region.

The Buipewura’s assurance that the traditions and customs of the Gonja people will be followed to ensure a seamless transfer and succession to the Yagbon Skin, according to the President, gave him hope.

We are all aware of the financial toll chieftaincy disputes can have on our country, so hearing that the changeover in your instance should be orderly and peaceful is reassuring. I appreciate your kind sentiments, he said.

The government would assist in making sure that the chief left in a way that was appropriate, and President Akufo-Addo promised that he would be present on the seventh day of Adua.
