Former President John Dramani Mahama has said the rest of the country will fight back and fend off the attacks and seeming take over of the Volta region by Western Togoland movement.
According to the NDC flagbearer, Ghana is a sovereign nation and the cohabitation, as well as the harmony among its people for the past years, must not be destroyed by few selfish individuals.
“Just a few days ago some unknown persons came to block roads claiming that Volta region is theirs so they want their independence. Ghana’s land belongs to Ghana, Ghana is a sovereign republic and nobody can claim a part of Ghana. When Rawlings built Ghana, we were all part.
“All of us come together to make Ghana so we cannot sit aloof and watch some people take Ghana. If it’s so, then everyone will trace their history and come for a part of their share which will not be a good thing. What brings us together is the fact that we are all Ghanaians,” Mahama noted while addressing a gathering in the Bono region where he is currently campaigning ahead of the December, 07 elections.
His comment comes on the back of the attack launched by the group against the State Transport Corporation (STC) in the Volta regional capital, Ho.
In this latest attack allegedly carried out by the group which follows an earlier attack on some state institutions and police stations including the mounting of roadblocks on Friday 25th September, 2020, some drivers in the yard were beaten while two vehicles belonging to the company were set ablaze.
The vehicles including a 14-seater bus with registration number, GG-4054-19 was burnt totally while the second one GG-1737-19 had parts of it burnt.
The incident was said to have happened around 2:30am on Tuesday.
Currently, operations have been halted while joint police and military team has taken over the yard.
