Ho, Oct. 02, GNA –The Asogli State Council has
stated its resolve to “resist” the creation of Oti Region out of the Volta
Region should the “due process” not be followed.

Togbe Adzi Lakle Howusu XII, Warlord of
Asogli, at a press conference on Tuesday, said the Council was not against the
creation of Oti Region, but owed it to the people to protect the “sanctity of
Eweland” by ensuring that the Constitution was followed strictly and all
Voltarians allowed to vote in the referendum.

He said creation of Oti Region involved the
alteration of existing boundaries of the Volta Region thus the need to allow
the entire Volta Region to take part in the referendum and not limited to areas
earmarked for Oti Region.

“In our view, it will be unconstitutional,
unfair and against natural justice to limit the referendum to a minority in the
Region leaving out the voices of the majority of Voltarians,” Togbe Howusu
stated.

He said they were aware of malpractices going
on in the limited voter registration taking place in the Oti enclave and said
the exercise threatened the peace of the Region.

Togbe Howusu therefore appealed to those
against and in favour of the creation of Oti Region to “uphold the truth” and
adhere strictly to procedures specified in the Constitution relating to the
alteration of boundaries of existing regions.

The press conference was attended by some
members of the clergy and youth of Asogli, clad in red.
