Ghanaians on social media have reacted to President Akufo-Addo’s statement that his government has made history with the creation of the new regions.
Last December 2018, a referendum was held in some parts of the Northern, Volta and Brong Ahafo regions for the creation of six new regions.
Following massive “Yes” votes, the Savannah, North East, Bono East, Ahafo, Western North and Oti regions were created.
Speaking at the Jubilee House, the president said the creation of the six new regions are a true reflection of the will of the people.
“We have written some Ghanaian history,” Nana Addo said, explaining that it is the first time under Ghana’s 1992 constitution that the provision on the creation of new regions have been “invoked and successfully been implemented.”
“It was clear that the process was demand driven and reflective of the will of the people as the constitution so intended,” he added.
Some Ghanaians have since taken to social media to give their opinions on the president’s statement.
While some believe it was a good course, others maintain that the creation of new regions is not something the president should be celebrating.
