EVIL NANA; DIVIDE & RULE ;GOD WATCHING


KU4 and others who think like you, this is not a Military Regime that wakes up one day to divide a region into two, like JJ did to the Upper Region (now Upper East and West). This is a Constitutional Government hence the demand comes from the inhabitants of the area. A Commission is set up to look into the demands to ascertain whether certain conditions are met for the creation, recommendations are made to the Government, Government calls on the Electoral Commission to organise a referendum with at least 50% of inhabitants voting and not less than 80% of votes cast in favour before the creation can be done. So It's not some one person's dream to wake up one day to divide a region. Have you heard of any group of people in the Ashanti or Eastern Region demanding the creation of a separate region? Do you know that the Ahafo part of Brong Ahafo was originally part of Ashanti Region until 1958 that Dr. Nkrumah carved it out to join with the Brong area to form The Brong Ahafo Region and there were no insults from.any quarters, but why now that people who have no knowledge or pretend not to know, have taken to the social media to insult the President on this issue, especially from the Voltarians. Just like a referendum(A UN plebiscite) incorporated The Trans-Volta Togoland into the Gold Coast on the verge of becoming Ghana, so can a referendum be used to determine the yearnings of other people. But remember that before this incorporation that Oti area was originally part of Gold Coast. So KU4, YAW, SHEILA, ZOOBIE-ZOOBIE, BC and the likes should stop insulting the President for no wrong done. Ex-President Mahama was also going to create region's and which regions did you think he was going to divide?
