It’s important to know your history. Out of ignorance, people have been referring to the Volta region as No.9, apparently, because they thought it was the 9th region created in Ghana.
At independence, there was what could be described as 4 regions:
1. The Gold Coast Colony
2. The Ashanti Protectorate
3. The Northern Territories
4. Trans Volta Togoland
Other demarcations took place after independence.
The Number 9 came about because during the first national beauty contest, organised on 4th March 1957 to herald Ghana’s independence, a 22 year old beauty by name Monica Amekoafia from Elavanyo won the contest to become the 1st Miss Ghana.
Monica happens to be wearing the Number 9 tag and represented the then Trans Volta Togoland, now known as the Volta Region.For Inquiries ,submission of Articles ,or any other Information, please Contact the editor via whatsApp 0506440219 or email @ email@example.com
