OUR CAMPAIGN TO SECEDE IS HERE


RESPONSE TO TROUBLE MAKER

Before you go ahead with your suggestion you need to undertake a survey in your area in order to find out what your people want. It is important to realise that in most areas where the people have decided to secede this decision has led to problems including fighting and unrest. You need to ask youself do you think that a small place like Trans Volta Togoland would survive on its own, build schools, roads, hospitals, universities, make its own cars and maintain roads as well generate enough income to pay all workers. The creation of a nation is not an easy exercise. It requires community diagnosis which includes: assessing the problems of the community, higliting the priorities before formulating a plan for on short term, intermediate term and long term basis. Even if a state can do this the state will realise that it has to cooperate with other states to survive which in this case would include Ghana. Where are you going to build your ports and air ports? Do you have the money and infrastructure to achieve what you are suggesting or do you think you would be asking another country in the world to give you free money to achieve your aim? Every country including USA, UK and other European countries have problems of their own and cannot help you achieve this aim. If the idea is to join Togo you need to consult Togolese to see if they are prepared to join up with TVT
SOLUTION
We need to work hard in all aspects of work (every individual inclusive). We have lots of land in Ghana if all Ghanaians would work hard to provide food, shelter and clothing for themselves our problems would be alleviated.
We also need to work hard to improve on our roads as well as develop our towns and villages. We do not all need to move big cities.
We all need to pay our taxes. That is the only way our government would be able to help us move forward. It is worth having debates and discussions on issues but let us not fight.
