Hon. Jacob Frederick Acolatse Lower Manya Krobo Municipal
Lower Manya Krobo Municipal forms part of the twenty six (26) Municipalities and Districts in the Eastern Region of Ghana. It lies between latitude 6.05S and 6.30N and longitude 0o08E and 0.20W. The Administrative Capital of the District is Odumase. The District covers an area of 1,476 km, constituting about 8.1% of the total land area within the Region (18,310 km). The major towns in the district include Odumase township (which incorporates Atua, Agormanya and Nuaso), Akuse and Kpong in the Lower Manya area. The District shares Boundaries with Upper Manya Krobo District to the north, to the south with DangmeWest and Yilo Krobo respectively, to the west with Yilo Krobo Municipal and to the east with Asuogyaman District.
The inauguration of the Lower Manya Municipal Assembly was on Wednesday marred by a demonstration organized by the Concerned Youth of Lower Manya Krobo and members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The fate of electorates at Akuse in respect of the upcoming assembly elections in the Lower Manya Krobo municipality is in a balance as the Supreme Court sits today to determine the merit or otherwise of a motion for an interlocutory injunction restraining the Electoral Commission (EC) from conducting elections in the area.
