16 Regions and their Capitals in Ghana
Within the Republic of Ghana, the regions of Ghana make up the first tier of subnational government administration. There are currently sixteen regions, which are further divided into 216 local districts for administrative purposes. When the Upper West Region was launched as the state's newest administrative region in 1987, the prior 10 regional boundaries were formally created. The Upper West Region was officially established in 1987, but it had been operating as an administrative division since the Upper Region was split up in December 1982, before the national census in 1984. On December 27, 2018, a vote was held about the creation of six new regions, and all of the proposals were accepted.
