The youth of the proposed Oti Region have noted with concern various agitations manifested in
the form of demonstrations, press conferences/ releases against the creation of a new region out
of Volta Region. While most of the strategies of those in opposition to the creation of the new
region had fallen flat on their faces, some of them have adopted various means to destroy the
gains the people of Oti have made so far.
We the youth of Oti wish to discourage individuals, groups of persons who have no vote in the
area with the intention of coming to the area under the guise of campaign to desist from that. We are aware that, some evil minded persons are been prepared to come and cause security problems
in the area.
We will not countenance any form of misconduct of any people who have no stake in
We the Youth of the Oti land are not aware of any such recognized group who are known within
Unlike the 1956 plebiscite where parties were formed and campaigned for YES &
All we know is that, the referendum is been held, with two assumptions, YES vote for the people to affirm their resolve for the creation of the new region or otherwise. No individuals or group of persons who have no votes in the area are permitted to undertake any campaign in the area.
We therefore wish to sound a note of caution to all those who belong to such groups to
hold on with their intended campaign before, during and after the referendum.
We the youth of Oti would not allow any individuals or cooperate entities entry onto our land with such an intention to foment troubles to destroy the enviable peace Oti land has enjoyed over the centuries.
Since the process towards the creation of new regions began, Oti is the only area that has had unwanted and senseless opposition.
In spite of the provocations of our detractors, the peace loving people of Oti have remained silent, we would not allow any group of persons or individuals to destroy the enviable peace and tranquility.
Nananon and the people have enjoyed all these years; we shall protect our peace jealously.
It is a known history that, the Guans were settled on then Gold Coast, now Ghana before anyone
else arrived. We are on our own land, linguistically, culturally & legally we are autonomous we
owe no allegiance to any tribe or group of people. We do not understand why we should be
subjected to such senseless opposition while we are on our land.
Question is who owns Oti land
as has been falsely peddled by some people?
We wish to send a note of caution to all who have the intention for a no campaign during the 27th
December , 2018 referendum in Oti area to desist from their intended evil minded adventure.
Your entry on Oti land for your intended campaign will meet the most strongest resistance by the youth all over the area.
