Central Tongu forms part of the twenty five (25) Municipalities and Districts in the Volta Region of Ghana. The District formerly known as North Tongu has its Administrative capital at Adidome.
The District lies within the tropical savannah grassland zone. The Volta River runs from the north to the south of the Disricts roughly dividing it into two equal parts with each half lying on the banks of the River.
The District shares boundaries with Akatsi East and Akatsi West to the east, to the south with South Tongu District and Ada East Districts respectively, to the west with Dangme West District and to the north with North Tongu Districts
Government is to set up a Centre of Excellence for Cassava Processing at Adidome in the Volta Region, to ensure best practice in the cassava industry with respect to processing, quality management and use of technology.
More community education on reproductive health would be needed to make Family Planning practice acceptable in the Central-Tongu district, an official of the Parent Parenthood Association (PPAG) has said.
Baring any surprises from assembly members at the Central Tongu District Assembly, Mary Ama Agbenyenu will become the new District Chief Executive following the termination of appointment of Alhaji Bubey Dzinedu in July this year.
