Member of Parliament (MP) for Buem, Daniel Kwesi Ashiamah has appealed to opinion leaders and chiefs from Southern Volta with dissenting views in the creation of Oti Region.

In an interview he posed two fundamental questions, “do you know the number of benefits that would come to pass with the creation of the Region so that our sisters, brothers who are married to people in Northern Volta would have a happy life and benefit from natural resources?

Again do you know the number of years we would live on this earth, when the region is created are we all not the same people?”

He further pointed out that resources meant for the Region is not touching all parts of the Region, the most “disadvantage part is the Northern Volta”, if you understand this basic principles nobody would argue over this because life is short.

“If I living my life getting to fifty years and my environment is not changing much and I have gone to school to study that an aspect of opportunity that can also help to develop my area is for government to redistribute the national cake. I know from the onset that if this national cake is re-divided and a portion is given to those of us in Northern Volta, we would also feel part of this nation”.

Mr. Daniel Kwesi Ashiamah said he supports creation of Oti Region hundred percent. Whiles growing my forefathers  fought for the creation of the Region, it did not happened, until both the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2016 elections put in their manifesto they would create a Region, he noted.

“My party the NDC is not against the creation of the Region all they are asking for is making the commission of inquiry report public”
