The leaders of the newly formed country, Western Togoland who reportedly gained their independence from Ghana (the UN is yet to officially recognise them) claimed the Akosombo Dam belongs to them and want to take possession right away.
This was contained in an interesting an report we sighted on Mynewsgh.com as told by their Shadow Information Minister and Spokesperson of the Separatist group, George Nyakpo on Starr FM.
According to Mr Nyakpo, the Akosombo Dam falls within their territory and thus have the legitimate right to claim ownership.
He hinted that the currency of the new country will soon be outdoored and an interim government named to steer the affairs of the newly independent Western Togoland.
The Homeland Study Group Foundation declared independence for the Volta, and parts of the Northern, North Eastern and Upper East Regions after its meeting held in Ho last Sunday.
However, these areas appear to have some establishments that belong to Ghana but the new group reveals that it will speak with authorities in Ghana to chart a new path on the latest development.
Meanwhile, Mr. Charles Kormi Kudzodzi, the 80-year-old Homeland Study Group Foundation (HSGF), who championed the partitioning of the Volta Region as an independent state is currently on bail by the Accra High Court 2 in the sum of ¢250,000.
