One of the factors that led to the massive endorsement of Nana Akuffo Addo was the campaign promises and as the Akuffo Addo led government is on the path to fulfilling it's campaign promises to the people of Ghana (by the creation of new regions), some political bigots have deployed tactics to derail and spifflicate the process.

We want to remind the public that socio-economic development thrives on Regionalism where the people in the local areas will have direct access to the Government to register their concerns.

The suit that Strategic Thinkers Network Africa (STNA) filed against the government of Ghana and the electoral commission is purely because of their political affiliation and a means of delaying the process but not to seek clarity in the Supreme Court.

We want lucidly iterate what necessitated the creation of the regions. For the government to ensure socio-conomic development through the creation of new regions , the Justice Browbey commission report recommended electoral commission to organize referendum to the some areas to elicit the responses of the indegenes to ascertain their stance.

On such backdrop, we Critical thinkers International are calling on Strategic Thinkers Network Africa to withdraw their petition in the Supreme Court to allow the electoral commission to expeditiously carry out the processes on time if they do not engage in cognitive dissonance.
