President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has named Damongo as the capital of the newly-created Savannah Region.

Speaking at a ceremony to present Constitutional Instrument (C.I.) 116 for the creation of the Savannah Region at the Jubilee House in Accra on Tuesday, 12 February 2019, Mr Akufo-Addo said: “Damongo has been chosen as the capital of the Savannah Region.”

The creation of the Savannah Region, together with five others, was a campaign promise of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) during the 2016 elections.

After the NPP won the polls, a Commission of Inquiry, headed by a retired Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice Stephen Brobbey, was instituted to ensure the creation of the regions.

Accordingly, Oti, Bono East, Western North, Ahafo, Savannah, North East regions were created.
