    I believe you’re not coming to make more money for your family but to leave a proud legacy – YaNa to Mahama

    The Overlord of Dagbon, YaNa Abukari II, has told former President John Mahama: “I believe you are not coming to make more money for your family but to leave a legacy that your children will not only be proud of but will pave the way for them wherever they find themselves in the future when you are long gone to your maker”.

    The YaNa gave the admonition when the flagbearer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress called on him on Monday, 5 February 2024 as part of his tour of the Northern Region.

    In a speech read for him, rhe traditional leader also urged Mr Mahama, who is attempting a comeback, to ensure he regularly reshuffles his government should he win the 2024 polls.

    “When you get the nod from Ghanaians, do not shy away from reshuffling your team to get the right ones on board by merits and competence and lay off even loyalists but misfits who will only churn out mediocrity for your government,” he said.

    “This applies, especially to your cabinet because they in reality rule you and the country. That will be a mistake no Ghanaian will forgive you if you happen to be the chosen one.”

    Mr Mahama, in his address, commended the overlord for collaborting with the authorities to fight robberies in the area.

    He also pledged to complete the development projects he started before leaving office which, he noted, have been abandoned by the Akufo-Addo government.

    “I am disappointed that with all the work we did in terms of the Yendi Water Supply Project, eight years after we left power, Yendi still has no water. I want to assure you that if your son becomes President, you will not be thirsty anymore,” he added.
