Yaa-Naa Abukari Mahama II has given cola to the two Regents of Dagbang whose fathers funerals have been performed.
The Kampakuya-Naa Abdulai Yakubu Andani goes to Savelugu as Yoo-Naa and the Boling-Lana Abdulai Mahamudu is the next Mion-Lana.
This latest development is in line with the customs and traditions of the Dagbang Traditional Area following the successful performance of the funeral of the late Mion-Lana Alhassan Abudu Ziblim.
The Kampakuya-Naa is the first son of the late Yaa-Naa Yakubu Andani II just as the Boling-Lana is of the late Yaa-Naa Mahamudu Abdulai IV.
The Kingmakers of Dagbang confirmed Yoo-Naa Abukari Mahama II, as the new Yaa-Naa.
This was after the successful final funeral rites of the late two Dagbang Overlords, Yaa-Naa Yakubu Andani II and Yaa-Naa Mahamudu Abdulai IV.
Yaa-Naa Yakubu Andani II
The late Yaa-Naa Yakubu Andani II was the King of Dagbang from 31 May 1974 until his death on 27 March 2002.

The late Yaa-Naa Yakubu Andani II died on 27 March 2002 at Yendi, the capital of the Kingdom of Dagbang.
Yaa-Naa Mahamudu Abdulai IV
Yaa Naa Mahamadu Abdullai IV whose funeral was performed after 30 years of his demise was the 35th Yaa-Naa of Dagbang.
