Paramount Chief of Kete-Krachi, Nana Mprah Besemuna III has debunked claims that the demand for a new region in the northern part of the Volta Region is orchestrated at taking over ownership of lands in the north perceived to belong to Ewes.

According to him, persons circulating such claims are ignorant of the Ghanaian history.

He explained that dwellers in the Oti enclave occupied the lands under the Trans-Volta Togoland, administered as the Northern Territory before being added to the Ewes to form the Volta Region in 1950s by the colonial masters.

He was speaking at the durbar of this year’s yam festival at Krachi in the Krachi West District of the Volta Region.

Nana Mprah Besemuna who doubles as the Chairman for the Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) of Oti Movement, the group leading the demand for a new region out of Volta.

He detailed the Oti enclave had received very little proportion of development in the Volta Region, hence, their demand for the new region.

The Krachiwura reaffirmed the commitment of chiefs and residents in the Oti enclave to vote yes for the new region
