- Volta Group is calling for the secession of the Volta Region from Ghana
-They argue the Volta Region and other parts of the Northern and Upper East Regions from Ghana should come together a the Western Togoland state.
Group calling itself the Homeland Study Group Foundation based in Ho is calling for the secession of the Volta Region and other parts of the Northern and Upper East Regions from Ghana to become what they term as the Western Togoland state.
According to the group, history references does show that residents of the Western Togoland voted to become a union with the Gold Coast (now Ghana) but the union had not been established up till now and even though Ghana opted to be a unitary state under the 1956 referendum.
The group is therefore calling for the declaration of Western Togoland, which stretches from Kulungugu in the Upper East Region to Keta in the Southern coast by the Atlantic ocean, as a sovereign state. Chairman for the group , Charles Kormi Kudjordjie, has thus revealed such a legitimate call would have to be listened to by government.
“The time is now to execute a common plan of action to come out of serfdom as some wise men and women did before under various autocracies the world over. Our wise men and women are again ready to strategise for the formula for coming out of the serfdom sooner than later. This congress is the launch pad for the missile attack at all fronts for independence. Whether it is here now, today, tomorrow is matter of choice that must not be delayed, but pursued vigorously”, Mr Kudjordjoe argued
Meanwhile government is yet to reply to the call by the Homeland Study Group Foundation which has so far been described as controversial and burdening.
