As a result of the worsening socio-economic situation in the rural areas and the municipality’s proximity to the Accra Metropolitan Assembly, more and more people migrate to the main urban and peri-urban areas of the municipality. These include Madina, Haatso, Dome,Taifa and Agbogba with the hope of obtaining a job and a higher standard of living. It is however worrying to note that majority of these migrants is in their youthful age and has no employable skills. Consequently they are compelled to engage in jobs like head portage (kaya yoo), truck pushers and street hawkers. A survey conducted by the MPCU indicated that most of them come from the northern sector of the country, specifically, northern region, upper east and west regions which are the top three poor regions.
