Temale Airport should be named after Na-Gbewa – Ya-na

King of Dagbon, Ya-Na Abukari Mahama II and the Dagbon citizenry have made a proposal to Akufo-Addo, asking him to name the Temale Airport after Na-Gbewa and not after Tolon Naa Alhaji Yakubu Alhassan Tali.

A letter from the Dagbon State indicated that naming the Temale Airport after Alhassan Tali “will draw our traditional state and entire Northern Region into needless controversy,”

Thus, the letter stated that “since this proposal was announced, the Gbewa Palace has been inundated with calls and other forms of communications pleading that the proposal be shelved.

Adding that ” It is the considered opinion of many and traditional leaders in the region is that such recognition is bestowed on Na Gbewaa.”

As at the time of writing this article, the reason for their proposal remains unclear to The Independent Ghana.

However, we will monitor event and render updates once they become available.
