Gonja King to Bawumia:

The overlord of Gonjaland, His Royal Majesty Yagbonwura Bii-Kunuto Jewu Soale I, has prayed for a son of the land, Dr. Mahamudu  Bawumia, to achieve his dream of becoming President of Ghana.

The Yagbonwura, who is the President of the Savannah Regional House of Chiefs, further assured the flagbearer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) of his blessings and support in the 2024 presidential polls.

“You are my son, and consider yourself a son of Gonjaland. May your dreams be fulfilled. I assure you of my blessings and support as the overlord of Gonja,” Yagbonwura Soale I stated.

The Yagbonwura said these kind words when the NPP flagbearer visited him at his palace on Wednesday, May 15, 2024.

He commended Dr. Bawumia for his role in the creation of the Savannah Region, which brought forth the Savannah Regional House of Chiefs.


The Yagbonwura ceased the moment to urge political parties to exercise decorum during the electioneering campaign. He called for campaigns that are clothed with civility and decency, devoid of insults and provocative statements.

Speaking particularly to the youth, Yagbonwura Bii-Kunuto Jewu Soale I advised them to avoid actions, conducts and behaviours that have the tendency to plunge the country into chaos.

Dr. Bawumia in Savannah Region


At a meeting with the Savannah Regional House of Chiefs, Dr. Bawumia indicated that it was an honour to visit the region as a son of the Gonja Kingdom and leader of the NPP.

I am feeling very much at home because my father has given me a very warm welcome,” Dr. Bawumia said.

He recalled that when NPP promised to create the Savannah Region, as was contained in its 2016 manifesto, because the people wanted it, a number of Ghanaians doubted it, but today the new region has been created.

According to him, the region has got its fair share of the national cake and that 378 projects had already been completed, whilst 137 are ongoing.

He mentioned that the Ghana Water Company was currently working hard to bring water to Damango.

Work has similarly commenced on the Daboya Bridge and “Insha Allah, this bridge will be completed before December this year.”

The presidential candidate of the NPP, Dr. Bawumia, further mentioned road projects currently going on in the Savannah Region and also outlined other projects by the Akufo-Addo government.
