BRIEF HISTORY

Historically, the northern part of the region, with the exception of the regional capital, Ho, was part of the German colony, while the southern part was administered as part of the Gold Coast colony. After Germany?s defeat in World War I, its colony of Togoland was partitioned. One portion was placed under the protectorate of Britain as the British Togo. The other, under French protectorate, became the French Togo, now the Republic of Togo.

The British protectorate of Togoland, later to be known as Trans-Volta Togoland (TVT), was administered by the Governor of the Gold Coast. After Ghana achieved independence in 1957, the Parliament adopted a resolution to merge and integrate the Trans-Volta Togoland with Ghana, under the name Volta Region.
