Keta Municipal, with Keta the Administrative capital is one twenty five (25) Municipalities and Districts in the Volta Region of Ghana. It was carved out of the former Anlo District, which also comprised Akatsi and Ketu Districts. The Municipality lies within Longitudes 0.30E and 1.05E and Latitudes 5.45N and 6.005N. It is located east of the Volta estuary, about 160km to the east of Accra, off the Accra-Aflao main road. It shares common borders with Akatsi South District to the north, Ketu South District to the east, South Tongu District to the west and the Gulf of Guinea to the south. Out of the total surface area of 1,086km2, approximately 362km2 (about 30 per cent) is covered by water bodies. The largest of these is Keta Lagoon, which is about 12 km at its widest section and 32km long. Hence, the remaining land area is only 724km2 a situation which creates severe constraints on access to land for development in the municipality. However, fishing and water transportation potentials exist.
The Volta Regional Minister, Helen Ntoso has debunked the notion that nothing is going on in the region by way of development, adding that all sectors of the economy in the region are receiving attention.
Residents in the Keta Municipality have lauded the Municipal Assembly for organizing the town hall meeting to open up to the citizens the works of stakeholders particularly, the assembly, and the two Members of Parliament in the area.
True to the words of the Municipal Chief Executive that 2015 will see additional infrastructure in various sectors to impact positively on the lives of the people, a live wire has been given to the proposed shopping mall and lecture halls by the assembly.
