Mion-Lana Mahamadu was a young man, who had a good heart, and was a lover of his people.
Hew a respectful and obedient Chief to his Overlord, and who was determined to do his bit to advance the welfare of the people of Dagbon.
It is my hope that, when the funeral rites are concluded, all will co-operate to find a worthy successor to him as Mion Lana. It will be one of the best ways we can pay tribute and honour to his memory.It
is a sad day for Dagbon, and I express my deep, sincere condolences to the Yaa-Na, the family of the late Mion Lana, and the people of Dagbon.
Maythe soul of Mion-Lana Abdulai Mahamadu rest in perfect peace.
