16 Regions in Ghana and Their Capitals and Ministers

Regions in Ghana: The regions of Ghana constitute the first level of sub-national government administration within the Republic of Ghana. There are currently sixteen regions, further divided for administrative purposes into 216 local districts.

The former ten regional boundaries were officially established in 1987 when the Upper West Region was inaugurated as the state’s newest administrative region. Although the official inauguration was in 1987, the Upper West Region had already functioned as an administrative unit since the break-up of the Upper Region in December 1982, prior to the 1984 national census. The referendum on the creation of six new regions was held on December 27, 2018 – all proposed new regions were approved.
