Regent of Dagbon stays away from Damba festival

By myjoyonline

The regent of Dagbon, Kampakuya-Na Abdoulaye Yakubu Andani is staying away from the traditional Damba Festival currently ongoing in Yendi.

Traditionally, a celebration of the Damba Festival should receive his approval and participation.

However the Regent contends an arrangement that both Abudus and Andanis should celebrate the event at separate palaces is a recipe for violence which he would not want to preside over.

This was contained in a statement issued to the Northern Regional Security Council and copied to the President, John Agyekum Kufuor.
