The Government of Ghana has rubbished the Homeland Study Group Foundation’s (HSGF) supposed declaration of ‘Western Togoland’ as an independent state.
Government assured that security agencies are taking the necessary measures to ensure all persons involved with the Homeland Study foundation’s planned secession from Ghana are made to face the law.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah.
“The Government of Ghana takes note of the activities of a group known as the Homeland Study Foundation, purporting to declare secession from Ghana.”
“Ghana remains a sovereign state which has not ceded any part of its territory to any person or group of persons.”
The Statement from the Government also called on the general public to disregard the secession claims by the group adding that Ghana’s security agencies remain firmly in charge of Ghana’s territory.
“Ghana’s security agencies remain in firm charge of Ghana’s territory and encourage all persons to continue with their daily activities normally.”
Over the weekend the leaders of the Homeland Study Group Foundation, campaigning for the secession of some parts of Ghana into an independent ’Western Togoland State’ declared their independence.
Leader of the Separatist movement, Mr. Charles Komi Kudzordzi alias Papavi Hogbedetor who is in his 80s made the declaration at a public gathering in Ho on Saturday, November 16, 2019.
