By Justice Kofi Bimpeh

The newly outdoored overload of Dagbon, Yaa Naa Mahama Abukari II has denied media reports that President Akufo-Addo has presented him a brand new Jaguar just after his investiture.

According to Yaa Naa, the Jaguar was rather a gift from a close friend.

Media reports on Friday, January 25 after the historic outdooring of Yaa Naa suggested that President Akufo-Addo has gifted the Yaa Naa a new Jaguar after a formal request from him.

Responding to the issues, Minister of Information Kojo Opong Nkrumah said he is not familiar with the issue of the purported new car given to Yaa Naa.
