History

The districts of Ghana were re-organized in 1988/1989 in an attempt to decentralize the government and to assist in development. [2] The reform of the late 1980s subdivided the regions of Ghana into 110 districts, where local district assemblies should deal with the local administration. By 2006, an additional 28 districts were created by splitting some of the original 110, bringing their number up to 138. In February 2008, there were more districts created and some were upgraded to municipal status. This brought the final number to 170 districts in Ghana. [3] Since then, a further 46 districts have been added since 28 June 2012 bringing the total to 216 districts. [4]
