A careful look at the regions in Ghana and their respective capital brings us down to look at districts in Volta region.
The Volta Region is located at 3o 45’ latitude N and 8o 45’ longitude N; it covers a total land area of 20572 km2 and stretches from the coast of Gulf Guinea running through all the vegetational zones found in the country.
The region is one of the sixteen administrative regions in Ghana and is highly dominated by the Ewes though there are also members of other tribes securing shelter in the region for reasons that are based mostly on trade and agriculture.
In accounting for the regional capitals, Volta Region has since years back accepted nationally its biggest town, Ho as the capital and a place where most of the region’s developmental projects are based.
