The Banda District is a new district carved out of the Tain District in the Brong Ahafo Region. It was created with a Legislative Instrument (LI) 2092 (Republic of Ghana, 2012) and inaugurated on 28th June 2012. The Banda District has Banda Ahenkro as its capital. It arose as a result of the large size of the then Tain District which was not in one way or the other allowing the government to fully implement its policies of local governance to the benefit of the entire citizenry. Banda Ahenkro, the capital is 126 kilometres away from Sunyani, the regional capital (approximately 1 hour 47 minutes’ drive by road).
