Dagbon NDC MPs under fire for abandoning Yaa-Naa Mahamudu Abdulai's funeral

The Abudu Royal family have slammed National Democratic Congress (NDC) Members of Parliament from the Dagbon Traditional Area for neglecting the funeral of the late Yaa-Naa Mahamudu Abdulai IV.

Yaa-Naa Mahamudu Abdulai IV's funeral was held from 14 to 28 December, 2018

According to the National President of the Abudu youth, Alhaji Mugisu Sibawey, the NDC MPs have demonstrated their neglect of the peace, unity and reconciliation deal.

He told Ghanaweb that the MPs failed to send their solidarity messages to the Abudu Family during the period.

The funeral service of the late overlord of Dagbon was held from December 14 to 28 in line with the Dagbon chieftaincy impasse Mediation Committee's timelines but no MP from the NDC side participated in the funeral.

Alhaji Mugisu commended the Yendi MP, Alhaji Mohammed Habib Tijani, the Savelugu MP, Samed Gunu, the MP for Nantong, Alhaji Hardi Tuferu, the Tolon MP, Alhaji Suhuyini Wahab Wumbei and the Gushiegu MP, Dr. Ziblim Iddi for their participation and support, according to Ghanaweb.

The Abudu Royal family on Friday climaxed the funeral of the late Yaa-Naa Mahamudu Abdulai IV with a special Qur'anic recitation.

Muslim Clerics from all walks of life converged at the reconstructed Old Gbewaa Palace in Yendi for the ceremony.

They extolled Almighty Allah for a successful performance of the funeral service of the late Dagbon Overlord who died in 1988.

They also prayed for Dagombas total unity and genuine reconciliation after the funeral of the late Yaa-Naa Yakubu Andani II scheduled for December 4 to 18, 2019.

The Northern Regional Minister, Salifu Sae-ed and other dignitaries were there.
