Before the end of the first world war,1914, Britain and France invaded the Torgoland/Togoland, a German protectorate of which Germany and the citizens of Torgo/Togoland signed a Treaty called "Amity and Commerce" and since has been trading with one another. France who was at the time Colonizing Dahomey (now Republic of Benin) and Britain who at the time was the Colonial Master over Gold Coast (now Republic of Ghana) team up against Germany during the ww1 in the far east theatres brought the war to the shores of Africa, a continent which got no business with the events leading to the war! The most astonishing of all is France and Britain did not send the war to any part of Africa where Germany hold dominance, but they choose only the Torgo Land! What exactly was the motivation only God knows. When Germany saw this and knowing very well the world governing body then the League of Nations has warned against the extension of the war to Africa, and seeing the atrocities the Franco-British forces were subjecting the people to, she gave up the fight! Not long Britain and France went to the upper part of the Torgoland and divided it into two the West and the East among themselves with the intentions of adding them to their already existing colonies as war Booties. The League of Nations sensing the dangers, forbid them, she took the lands and recognized them as Class B Territories and reassigned it to them(Britain and France) to be Nurtured to independence and should not add any part to their already existing colonies. At the collapse of the League of Nations and the birth of the UN, the UN still hold in trust the workings of the League of Nations in connection with the Trust Territories. The UN upgraded the Territories status into A Mandates, by this France and Britain were mandated to Nurtured the two entrusted Territories into fully fledged independent States. When the call to end of colonialism began echoing all colonies and Territories embraced the call and most were granted independence, in Africa specifically West Africa and in the case of the two colonies(Gold Coast and Dahomey) and the two Territories,(Western Togoland and Eastern Togoland) the colonial masters who were at the same time Mandates also get the heat to free the lands under their influence. Gold Coast put pressure on Britain to free them as well as Dahomey on France. In that same vein there was also pressure on both France and Britain from the twoTogolands to also free them. Before Britain will do what is expected she began to orchestrate the plans to integrate her Trust Territory into Gold Coast. She was reminded of the UN claus that forbid that but she use several tactics to steal the land ad make it look like is one with Ghana now. If the other half of Togoland is free today as republic of Togo why can't the other half also stand? Britain claim their life is in the hand of the Gold Coast, (this was one of her point of which she think the Western Togoland should be added to Ghana, she said the destiny of WTL is in the hand of Ghana)

Again she claimed the WTL is too small to stand as a nation. (Which can never be true since we've got a lot of countries today smaller than WTL, example Malta,Gambia Swaziland etc.

Britain also argued WTL got no minerals to support her, another devilish lies! WTL got the biggest oil reserve in the coast of the gulf of Guinea. According to Dr.Kett the German mineralogist at the time which confirmed, from the coast of Keta to Aflao about 22 thousand nautical miles of crude oil, which Ghana is stealing now! WTL can boast of lots of minerals such as Gold,Uranium, Diamond, Lithium,Bauxite etc.

Owing to this unfortunate claims by Britain, UN was forced to ask the citizens to decided their own fate in a referendum, the mistake UN made also to ask of Britain to head the organization of the referendum in the land that she dearly wish she own! Britain turn the referendum into a plebiscite, meaning we the owners of the land rather are slaves! The process of pulverized with a lot anomalies and machinations. At the end some undemocratic exercise went on and some kind of vote went in favor of Yes to a Union with Gold Coast.

For the past 60+ years the citizens of WTL have been subjected to undescribable treatments and retardation of economic progress with few bribed leaders who are just self seekers with policies that can only make them rich over the majority of the population and this has plunged the land into varied ethnic and tribal conflicts.

 

Now we have seen the light through the teachings of the homeland study group foundation, who have shed the light on all the hidden agendas of how Britain manoeuvres to add WTL to Ghana. Now is the call for us to liberate our land and take our destiny into our hand to progress! It must also be noted that the current government of Ghana is using the security force to instil fear in the leaders and the members of HSGF, this is curtailment of fundamental Human rights which the world must condemned!

Please kindly sign the petition to draw the attention of the world to peacefully restored our land for us! Eastern Togo is on her own the Western MUST also be on her own!

I as a citizen and lover of peace and human right I think Ghana cannot hold on to what is not hers! Why didn't France added Eastern Togo to Dahomey now Benin but granted her full independence status? But Britain try to integrate WTL into her colony? This is clear abuse of our Rights!
