Mubarak Wakaso pays courtesy visit on Ya-Na

Ghana star Mubarak Wakaso has paid a courtesy call on the Overlord of Dagbon Kingdom, Ya-Na Mahama Abukari (II) at the Gbewaa Palace in Yendi.

The Deportivo Alaves midfielder spent some time interacting with the King on Thursday before presenting him with his club jersey.

Wakaso is enjoying a brief holiday in his native Tamale ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt next month.

He took to his twitter to share photos of the visit with the caption; “Our home, our land, our chief, our kingdom, our palace. was an honor sharing this special time with the KING of dagbon YA-NAA at GBEWAA PALACE #peaceforeeverimdagbon #proudofnorth #theprideofnorth”

Born in 1939 in Yendi, Ya-Na Abukari Mahama was the enskinned earlier this year following the settlement of 17-year old chieftaincy dispute after funeral rites for two departed overlords.
