The Oti Regional House of Chiefs says they now have a sense of identity after the creation of the Oti Region out of the Volta Region.
The chiefs expressed their gratitude when the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia inaugurated the Regional House of Chiefs at Dambai on Tuesday, September 22, 2020.
Speaking at the inaugural event, the chiefs said “Thank you for giving us an identity with the creation of the new region and we are grateful to President Akufo-Addo”
Dr. Bawumia also speaking at the event said the creation of the new regions will help in the development of the areas and will bring democracy closer to the people.
“As the President said in Goaso during the inauguration of the Ahafo Regional House of Chiefs, Government is determined to bring governance closer to the people, and expand the boundaries of democracy in our country. We are counting on you to help shape and integrate yourselves into these developments. This way, the peculiarly Ghanaian contribution to the concept of governance, which emanates from the integration of royal, aristocratic institutions into the fabric of a republican, democratic framework, will be enhanced and strengthened to the benefit of the Ghanaian people.” he said.
Dr. Bawumia also outlined the achievements of the NPP governments and told them the need to retain them in power.
