The Saboba District is one of the 26 districts in the Northern Region. The district was carved out of the then East Dagomba District In 1988, in pursuance of the Government’s Decentralisation and Local Government Reform policy, with Saboba as the district Administrative capital. It is located on the north-eastern corner of the Northern Region. The district is bounded by Chereponi District to the north, Tatale District to the south, Yendi Municipal and Gushiegu to the west. On the east, is the River Oti, which serves as the international boundary between Ghana and the Republic of Togo.
The Soboba District Assembly would from next year rehabilitate market stalls in major market centers in the district and reallocate them to individuals who are more serious and committed to their businesses.
The Saboba District Director of Agriculture, Mr. Alidu Alhassan has called for improvement in staff of the sector to help deal with challenges confronting farmers especially in offering technical advice.
