The North Dayi District was established by Legislative Instrument (L.I.) 2076 of 2012. Its capital is Anfoega. It was carved out of the then Kpando District and inaugurated on 28th June, 2012. This is as a result of the growing population of the Kpando District and also to ensure that development gets to the doorsteps of the people.
North Dayi District lies within latitudes 60 20’N and 70 05’N, and Longitude 00 17’E. It shares boundaries with Kpando Municipal to the north, South Dayi District to the south, and the newly created Afadzato South District to the east. The Volta Lake which stretches over 80km of the costal line, demarcates the western boundary of the District. The District covers a total land area of 462.8square kilometers with almost 30 percent of the land being submerged by the Volta Lake.
The North Dayi District Assembly with its capital at Anfoega hopes to have its challenges with office space for its various decentralized departments solved with the construction of its new office complex.
