The Overlord of Dagbon, Ya-Na Abubakari Mahama II says the northern part of the country stands to gain from the election of either Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia or former President John Dramani Mahama as president in the 2024 general elections.

According to him, since both men are sons of the land, whoever wins the election will be bringing the title of President home, making it a win for all northerners.

In a speech delivered on his behalf, the Ya-Na admonished Dr. Bawumia to recognise John Mahama as a brother and not an enemy.

“We as northerners have to be grateful to all Ghanaians for trusting that only a Northerner can lead Ghana after 2024. It is a big opportunity for us to demonstrate our capabilities, competence, honesty and dedication to moving Ghana forward.

“My son, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama who is also a son is your fellow competitor in this election, he is not your enemy or rival.

“He is your elder brother and a former President of Ghana who is also being presented by the largest opposition party in our country to be re-elected as president.

“As Northerners we have already won the election with whoever we elect because whoever wins, the trophy is coming home.”

The Ya-Na, who was speaking during a courtesy call on him by the Vice President, also used the opportunity to appeal for a clean campaign.

“I want you to run a clean campaign with your brother. A campaign devoid of name-calling and insults. You are a fine gentleman and everybody knows that, so don’t let your team mislead you, it is you that the good Lord has chosen because of what He has put in you and not your team.

“Your team is supposed to translate your thoughts and ideals including what all of you have agreed on into action and not the other way round. You team works tirelessly for you because of what they have seen in you so don’t disappoint them.

“Lead them and don’t let them lead you else you have wasted all their efforts.”
