The paramount chief of the Tatale traditional area in the Zabzugu-Tatale constituency in the Northern Region, Obore Gariba Yankosor II, has backed President John Mahama and his National Democratic Congress (NDC) for victory in the 2016 polls.
Obore Gariba Yankosor II also enskinned President Mahama as a sub chief along side gifts of a bull, 100 tubers of yam and two doves to foreshadow the hoped-for victory.
The Tatale chief is the second in the region to openly declare his support for the President on his campaign tour of the Northern Region, after the paramount chief in East Gonja, Kpembe Wura.
Kpembewura Bismark Haruna pledged the support of every Gonja living everywhere for the NDC flagbearer against recent calls by the National House of Chiefs to various chiefdoms across the country to desist from partisan leanings.
During his campaign tour on Wednesday, the spokesperson for Obore Gariba Yankosor II announced, “We have given his Excellency, the President of the republic of Ghana a very fat bull, 100 tubers of yam and two doves to signify his two terms in office. So your Excellency, our blessing is already on you. You are going for the second term and there is no challenger.”
“We are also giving you symbol of a chief, we are going to make you chief today and we are thanking you and telling you that we are surely behind you,” he said to President Mahama ahead of the honorary enskinment as a sub-chief.
