Reconstruction of the Ya Na’s palace at Yendi, the traditional capital of Dagbon has been completed.

None of the members of the Andani and Abudu Gates involved in the Dagbon chieftaincy dispute has yet had access to the new palace.

The palace is guarded by a large number of security personnel.

A source explained that the heavy security presence at the palace was to ensure that none of the factions forcibly occupy it.

The palace has two blocks facing each other. The bigger one has 13 rooms, with four additional ones for the king.

The smaller block has seven collectively referred to as ‘zein’ in the Dagbani language. It means ‘for the elder wives of the king’.

The acting chief executive of Yendi, Alhaji Habib Tijani confirmed this in a radio programme in Tamale. But could not tell when the late Ya Na Yakubu Andani will be buried.

He says the ‘burial is a traditional matter and is being handled by Otumfuo Committee and the Dagbon traditional leaders.

Alhaji Tijani says the district assembly was ready to assist as much as possible.

The security situation in Yendi and Tamale is calm with people going about their normal duties.
