One thought on “Nandom District Now Nandom Municipality – Akufo-Addo”
  1. We need to be serious as a country, how can a district that was created in 2012 become a municipality in 2020 barely eight years after its creation, Lawra from which Nandom was carved out was created a district in 1907 and was elevated to municipal status in 2017, because of somebody’s parochial interests nandom is now a mockery of a municipality, then Wa should be elevated to a metropolis, if you look at the current population requirement for a district which is 75,000 people, nandom does not qualify to be a district much more a municipality, let’s be serious for once.
