The Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Hon Joseph Yileh Chireh has said the ministry will determine whether the Nkoranza south district assembly should be upgraded to a municipal status when the Ghana Statistical Service conducts the national population census later this year and comes out with the result. He made this known in parliament in response to a question by the MP for Nkoranza South, Hon. Kwame Ampofo Twumasi. Hon. Ampofo wanted to know when the Nkoranza South District Assembly will be upgraded to municipal status. For an assembly to attain the status of a municipal assembly, Hon. Yileh Chireh said, its geographical area should have a minimum of 95 thousand people.
