Talks to resolve the four-year-old disagreement over succession to the late Dagbon king entered day two at the Asantehene’s Manhyia palace on Thursday.

A group of eminent chiefs led by Otumfuo Osei Tutu II is mediating in the impasse, which has sharply divided the Andani and Abudu Royal families of the Dagbon.


The first day of the meeting with the eminent chiefs, ended in a stalemate yesterday as representatives of the two families disagreed on which of the two gates had the mandate to install the regent first.

Members of the Andani family have started series of ceremonies that will culminate in the burial of the assassinated king and the installation of a regent.

But the Abudu family has vowed to resist any such move.

The Executive Director of the West African Network for Peace Building Emmanuel Bombandey told JOY News the insistence on installing a regent further complicates the matter.

Mr. Bombandey says the two sides must agree to get the burial of the Ya Naa out of the way before considerations for the installation of a regent.
