Ghana to vote on creation of more districts in 2018

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said that Ghana will vote in a referendum to decide on the fate of some proposed new districts.

The President’s comments followed the presentation of a Bill by the Council of State to the Parliament to facilitate the creation of new regions to make administration of the nation easier.

The Daily Graphic on Tuesday reported that President Akufo-Addo in an interaction with some chiefs in Accra at the seat of government on Monday, assured that it would be done, but was not sure exactly when the referendum would take place.

He made it clear that a commission of enquiry has been constituted to look into the proposed regions to facilitate the process.

The debate about the creation of new regions emerged this year after the President appointed a minister responsible for regional re-organisation, which has been met by mixed feelings.

A referendum on the matter would definitely put the debate to rest next year.
