President Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo has declared that he is neither a sympathizer of the Abudu nor the Andanis.
Speaking at the outdooring ceremony of the new Ya Na Abukari Mahama II at Yendi in the Northern region on Friday January 25,2019, the President jokingly said he supports both the Abudus and the Andanis
”I am not an Abudu nor Andani but rather I am an Abudani” he said.
Following the killing of the late Ya Na Yakubu Andani II in 2002, the John Agyekum Kufuor government set up a Committee of Eminent Chiefs led by the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to help find a solution to the crisis.
The committee in November 2018 presented a final road map for peace to President Nana Akufo-Addo. The road map also led to the successful performance of the funerals of Ya Na Abdulai and Yaa- Naa Andani.
The kingmakers of Dagbon eventually selected Ya Na Abubakari Mahama II as the new overlord of the Dagbon traditional area.
