Naming Tamale Airport after Yakubu Tali will draw traditional states into needless controversy – Ya-Na

King of Dagbon, Ya-Na Abukari Mahama II, has said that Akufo-Addo’s intention to name Tamale Airport after a son of the land, Tolon Naa Alhaji Yakubu Alhassan Tali is unacceptable to citizens of Dagbon.

He said that since President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo announced during the State of the Nation Address the government’s intention to rename both the Kumasi Airport and the Tamale Airport upon their completion, ” the Gbewa Palace has been inundated with calls pleading that the proposal be shelved.”

Thus the Ya- Na’s assertion that the move “will be contentious and counterproductive.”

Adding that “It will draw our traditional state and entire Northern Region into needless controversy,” a letter from the Dagbon stated indicated.

The Ya-Na’s office is certain that the President is not prepared to handle the controversy that comes with naming the Temale Airport after Yakubu Tali

The office then suggested that such honor should instead be conferred upon the Na-Gbewa.
