Akatsi North District with its capital Ave Dakpa was carved from Akatsi and forms part of the new districts and municipalities created in the year 2012 and were inaugurated at their various locations simultaneously on the 28th June, 2012.
The President H.E. J.E.A Mills, by an Executive Instrument (E.I) created 46 new Districts.
All the inaugurated and confirmed MMDAs established are operational with immediate effect hence bringing the total number of MMDAs to 216.
These new creations arose as a result of the large size of some of the then 170 MMDAs which was not one way or the other allowing the government to fully implement its policies of local governance to the benefit of the entire citizenary.

As part of strategies to spur development for the new Akatsi North district, the District assembly has resolved to trickle down the implementation of the District Development Fund(DDF) to work within the district sub-structures.
The Akatsi North District Assembly has put in place measures to ensure the active participation of the people in the decision-making process, particularly on issues concerning the execution of development projects.
