The Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has said the government will publish the 398-page report of the Justice Brobbey Commission that inquired into the creation of new regions this week.
The publication would be done on government online portal www.ghana.gov.gh, and other social media handles as well as made it available to the Ghana Publishing Company for the hard copy for purchase.
Again, copies of the report would also be made available to Parliament and subsequently disseminated across key stakeholders nationwide.
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.
He said the money has already been apportioned in the 2019 budget.
He added that the government had allotted GH¢120 million for all the 6 regions but was subject to if the referendum returns a YES vote in all the six (6) proposed regions.
