Lead Advocate For Proposed Oti Region Dead


Lead advocate for the proposed Oti Region in the Volta Region, Mr Kwaku Addeah has passed on.

A statement issued by the Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) of Oti Movement, the group pushing for the creation of the Oti Region from the Volta Region, said Dr Addeah died at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital on Sunday, May 14, 2018.

“On behalf of the Chairman and members of the JCC we wish to inform all Nananom, the entire citizens of our proposed Oti region of the call to eternal rest of our brother and friend Dr Kwaku Addeah. Dr Addeah’s death occurred at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital yesterday,” the statement said.

Mr. Adeah, a lawyer, was the secretary and spokesman for the JCC Oti Movement and had defended the creation of the Oti Region on several platforms.

JCC was formed in April 2017 by the chiefs and people of the eight traditional districts and areas of the proposed Oti area to push their demand for the creation of Oti Region.

The traditional districts are Jasikan, Kadjebi, Biakoye, Krachi East, Krachi West, Krachi Nchumuru, Nkwanta North and Nkwanta South.

The traditional areas include Akpafu, Santrokofi, Likpe and Lolobi.

Commission ends public hearings
The Justice Brobbey Commission was formed by President Akufo-Addo under Constitutional Instrument (CI) 105 to, among other things, inquire, into the need and substantial demand for the creation of new regions which include Northern, Volta, Western and Brong Ahafo Regions.

The Commission rounded up its public hearings with a last sitting in Accra in April 2018.

It is expected to submit its report on the matter after which a referendum will be held in the beneficiary regions.
