A PRESS conference scheduled to be held in Tamale yesterday by the Abudu gate of the Dagbon Traditional Area believed to be in connection with the burial of the late Ya Na Yakubu Andani II, was called off without explanation.

Over the weekend, sources close to the acting president of the Dagbon Traditional Council, Kuga-Na Brahim Abdulai, had told the press in Tamale that the late overlord of Dagbon would be buried next month.

The source said the decision had been communicated to the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, chairman of the Committee of Eminent chiefs on the Dagbon Crisis and the President.

The source revealed that a letter outlining the progrmme for the burial had also been sent to Otumfuo Osei Tutu and President J.A. Kufuor as well as the Northern Regional Security Committee (REGSEC) last week.

According to the Kuga-Na, the entombing of the mortal remains of the late king and customary installation of his eldest son as the regent freed him as acting leader of the traditional area, and offer him full time to concentrate once more on the customary and cultural affairs of Dagbon.
