December 27 is inching closer and registered voters in the six proposed new regions are girding up their loins to go to the polls in a referendum to confirm or reject the creation of the regions.

Recent visits I made to my native Ahafo revealed that expectations are very high. In the six administrative municipalities/districts — Asunafo North, Asunafo South, Asutifi South, Asutifi North, Tano North and Tano South — the chiefs and other community leaders are in the thick of affairs educating their people on the need to vote ‘Yes’ on the referendum day.

In Accra, where I live, members of the Ahafo Citizens Association have also been preparing feverishly for the polls and the eventual inauguration of a new region. And, in Kumasi, a group led by my friend and accountant with the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT), Mr Stephen Owusu Gyamfi aka Glabus is also working towards making the referendum a success.

Naturally, my interest in the referendum lies in Ahafo and I expect our people to be guided by the unimpressive development trajectory to vote a massive “Yes” to see the birth of a new region, which the people have been yearning for since the 1970s.
