Ejura-Sekyedumase District was carved out of the former Sekyere and Offinso Districts and was thus created as a result of the implementation of the decentralized programmes on 29th November, 1988. The district was established by a legislative instrument, PNDC L.I 1400, 1988.The district is located within longitudes 1˚5W and 1˚39’ W and latitudes 7˚9’ N and 7˚36’N. It has a large land size of about 1,782.2sq.km. (690.781sq.miles) and is the fifth largest district in Ashanti region’s 26 districts. It constitutes about 7.3% of the region’s total land area with about one third of its land area lying in the Afram Plains.
It is located in the Northern part of the Ashanti Region and is bounded in the north by Atebubu and Nkoranza districts (both in the Brong Ahafo region), on the west by Offinso district, on the East by Sekyere East district and the south by Sekyere West and Afigya Sekyere district.
The District Chief Exective for Ejura Sekyerdumase Marthar Bruckner has described the notion that the National Democratic Congress has done nothing in her area as typically false and only meant to gain cheap political capital out of it.
About 35 former workers of Ejura Farms in the Ashanti Region laid off in 2008 have appealed to the government to compensate them to enable them access income generating ventures to enhance their living standards.
