We’ll deal with HSGF separatists – Ghana gov’t declares

The government of Ghana has served notice it will deal with separatists who have declared a part of the country as an independent state.



Over the weekend, the Homeland Study Group Foundation (HSGF) led by an octogenarian separatist leader Charles Kormi Kudzordzi, 85, declared a part of Ghana – mainly the eastern zone up to the north – as an independent state.






The group is led by an 85-year-old retired educationist, Kormi Kudzodzi (aka Papavi Hogbedetor)

He declared that “from  midnight today November 16 2019 entering tomorrow, We’re now Western Togoland state.”

However, Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said the government has taken notice of the group’s activities and the security agencies will tailgate them.

“Ghana remains a sovereign state which has not ceded any part of its territory to any person or group of persons. While admonishing the public to disregard the claims by the group, the general public is hereby informed that state security agencies are taking the necessary measures to ensure that persons involved with the illegal act, are dealt with in accordance with the law,” he said in a statement copied to DailyMailGH on Monday.

Below is the full statement:
