[email protected] brings 93-year old Yagbonwura to anniversary grounds

By (ghanaian-chronicle)

THE ROYAL King of the Gonja Traditional Area, Yagbonwura Bawah Doshie, who is currently the second oldest Chief in Ghana, managed to fully participate in the Golden Jubilee Celebration on March 6, 2007 in the West Gonja District capital, Damango.

The 93-year-old King who is a member of the Otumfuo Mediating Committee of Eminent Kings in the Dagbon Chieftaincy Crisis, arrived at the Jubilee durbar grounds far ahead of the expected time to signify his support and love for the people of the area and Ghana as a whole.

Flanked by the Damangowura and other equally important Chiefs and elders under his jurisdiction, the Yagbonwura, to the extreme surprise of most people, managed to grace the 6th March celebration to the end.

It is believed that the Yagbonwura was one of the notable Ghanaian Chiefs who helped the country's struggle for independence and the abolition of slave trade in the Northern Sector.

The King and his Chiefs were all dressed in the Ghana @50 clothes provided by the West Gonja District Assembly. Yagbonwura Bawah Doshie, according to the history of the Gonjas, is a grandson of Ndewura Sumaila Jakpa, one of the greatest warriors who led his people into many victorious battles.

Before descending on the throne as the Yagbonwura on 4th April 1999, the great king was ruling as Kpembewura. The Gonja Traditional Area has since time immemorial been one of the most peaceful areas in the North, due to the clear interpretation in their tradition and well-established chieftaincy foundation built by the Great Ndewura Jakpa.

His unflinching love for his children and outstanding leadership did not only unite the people, but also provided guidelines on how one could become a chief and subsequently a Yagbonwura in the area.

The Yagbonwura's seat, which is the highest Skin in the Gonja Kingdom, cannot be assumed through violence, riches or by chance. It is strongly established that only the “grandsons of the Ndewura Jakpa can qualify to become a Yagbonwura” and must hail from one of the five royal communities, which include; Bole, Wasepe/Daboya, Tuluwe, Kawsawgu and Kpembe.

The Yagbon skin is inherited on a rotational basis among the Chiefs of the five mentioned areas. Meanwhile, the Tuluwe-wura is the next Chief to inherit the Yagbon Skin after Yagbonwura Bawah Doshie.
