    DISTRICT PROFILE
    The Suhum Municipality is one of the twenty-six administrative districts in the Eastern Region of Ghana. It was established in June 2012 by Legislative Instrument (L.I.) 2048. Suhum is the municipal capital and major town. The municipality was part of the defunct Suhum-KraboaCoaltar District until the Ayensuano District was carved out of it in July 2012. The municipality has three Zones – Suhum, Akorabo and Nankese – with three Zonal Councils. Each Zonal Council has a chairman, secretary, treasurer and councillors.

    More than half (57.8%) of households in the Municipality are engaged in agriculture. In terms of rural-urban distribution, the number of households engaged in agriculture in the rural areas (74.7%) is almost three times the number in the urban areas (25.3%). Most of the agricultural activities in the Municipality therefore take place in the rural areas. Crop farming in the Municipality is very dominant in the rural areas.

    The two bi-weekly market centers are located in Suhum and Akorabo. Buyers and sellers from Kofordua, Nsawam, Ashaiman, Ningo, Accra etc. visit these markets to trade especially during the market days of Monday and Thursday.
