Afigya-Kwabre district with its capital Kodie forms part of the new districts and municipalities created in the year 2007 and were inaugurated at their various locations simultanously on the 29th of February 2008.

All the inaugurated and confirmed MMDAs established are operational with immediate effect hence bringing the total number of MMDAs to 170.
These new creations arose as a result of the large size of some of the then 138 MMDAs which was not one way or the other allowing the government to fully implement its policies of local governance to the benefit of the entire citizenary.
