Togoland known as Western Togoland under the supervision of the UN and therefore the administering authority of england.
In 1956, one among the foremost contentious political questions for the region was whether Western Togoland should unite with the contiguous British Gold Coast colony or remain a UN territory. A UN-sanctioned plebiscite resolved this matter. Inhabitants of Western Togoland voted to make a union with the Gold Coast, culminating within the birth of Ghana in March 1957.
Nevertheless, since independence, distinct secessionist groups have emerged to demand self-determination for Western Togoland. These secessionist demands are, however, untenable because they appear to not reflect the desire of the broader majority of ethnic groups that form up the complete region. Yet, the irredentist claims arise from the deprivation of a territory whose union with the Gold Coast was precisely driven by the hunt for development. Political and economic reforms are required to boost the welfare of this territory, which might reduce the structural triggers of secessionism.
