The Paramount Chief of Savelugu Traditional Area, Na Bakpeng Yoo Naa Abdulai Andani continues to grow his relationship with the Paramount Chief, Buipe Traditional area, Buipewura Abdulai Jinapor II.
Both chiefs who have on record graced each other’s festivals set a good precedence for other traditional rulers in the north to emulate to foster togetherness and eschew the erroneous impression that chiefs in the north are at war with each other.
Another singular gesture that caught the prying lenses of the media is the donation of a horse by Yoo Naa to the Buipewura who could that is seen taking a test ride at his palace.
In a video that has gone viral on social media, Buipewura Abdulai Jinapor II is seen beaming with smiles as he sits on the dressed horse which walks around his palace with his subjects hailing him.
A resident of the area who could not keep calm about the Yoo Naa’s gesture wrote “thank you Ŋyeb Yoo Naa for this wonderful gift. May god continue to strengthen the ties between the two kingdoms”
