New Regional Capitals To Be Announced On Tuesday Feb 12th 2019

On that day, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will issue a Constitutional Instrument (CI) to give effect to the creation of the regions and the capitals.

The Minister of Regional Reorganisation and Development, Mr Dan Botwe, made this known when he paid a courtesy call on the Overlord of Mamprugu, the Nayiri, Naa Bohagu Mahami Abdulai Sheriga, at his palace last Tuesday to officially invite him to the ceremony on behalf of the President.

He said the President had extended invitations to chiefs, opinion leaders, municipal and district chief executives and various stakeholders to the Jubilee House for the historic ceremony.

Already, the results of the referendum that created the new regions have been gazetted by the Electoral Commission (EC) and the President issuing the CI will be the final act to be performed for the full creation and inauguration of the new regions.
