Addressing journalists on Sunday, he said the process for the creation of new regions was initiated in accordance with Article 5 of the 1992 constitution, which does not provide for the publication of the Report of the Commission of Inquiry.

However, due to the President's firm views on good governance and transparency, he called for the publication of the Report.

He said President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo stated that "the dictates of good governance and transparency in the public space of a functioning democracy should lead me to authorize, prior to the planned referenda by the Electoral Commission on December 27, 2018, the publication of the Report of the Commission of Inquiry into the Creation of New Regions".

Meanwhile, Minister for Reorganisation and Development, Dan Botwe has disclosed that the government will use GHc 20m as a seed capital in the creation of the new regions.
