Overlord of Mamprugu opposes the title of paramount chief and seeks for a change to the chieftaincy Act
Naa Bohagu Mahami Abdulai Sheriga

Naa Bohagu Abdulai Mahami, the paramount chief of the Mamprugu Traditional Area and president of the North East Regional House of Chiefs, has advocated for the modification of the Chieftaincy Act of 2008, particularly the provisions that designate him as such.

The overlord claims it defies logic to classify himself as a paramount chief under the present Chieftaincy Act as he has the power to enskin paramount chiefs.

Therefore, he is requesting that the Attorney General Department, the National House of Chiefs, the Ministry of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, and the Parliament of Ghana take action to modify the Act so that the Nayiri Skin is classified appropriately.
