Local Governance Expert, Fred Agyarko Oduro says the creation of new regions will not affect the traditional powers or authority of any Chief in the affected Regions.

Speaking to GBC’s Felix Cofie, Mr. Oduro said the creation of the new regions will not create any disunity or disharmony for the affected areas.

He said the new regions should be seen as a bridge to close the development gap.

Mr. Agyarko Oduro said there was broader consultation in all the affected regions and it is surprising that people are now raising issues with the exercise.

On the upcoming referendum and the call for all Ghanaians to take part, Mr. Oduro said that lies with the Supreme Court to decide in view of the challenge before it.
