He said: “Successive governments have played their roles but his excellency President Akufo-Addo and his government deserve special praise.
“Dagbon people are one, all perceived differences are political constructions. To our Dagbon brothers and sisters, I have a humble request, please remember that Dagbon cannot achieve much unless you stay united.
“We have a common desire for development. Let us join hands in pursuit of that objective so that we will leave a legacy of peace, unity and development for our children and grandchildren.”
A grand durbar is taking place in Yendi today to outdoor the new Overlord.
