The President who inaugurated the Commission of Enquiry at the Flagstaff House on Thursday, October 19, said the quest to create a new region is purely demand driven for which he has received petitions from the Western Region, Northern Region, Brong Ahafo Region and Volta Region for its creation.

The rest are: Mr Robert Ajene, retired Director of Education; Dr David Wellington Essaw, Senior Research Fellow, University of Cape Coast; Prof. George Owusu, Institute of Statistical, Social & Economic Research, (ISSER)/Director, Centre for Urban Management Studies, University of Ghana; and Ms Josephine Hughes, legal practitioner.

He further called on the NCCE and stakeholders to play a part in the coalition of the views of the people in the creation of the new regions, adding that the success of the project largely depends on their work.
