Hon. Captain Anthony R. Cudjoe (Rtd) Sekondi Takoradi Metropolitan
Secondi Takoradi Metropolitan forms part of twenty two (22) Metropolitan, Municipalities and Districts in the Western Region of Ghana. The Administrative Capital of the Metropolitan is Sekondi. This makes it the smallest, but easily the most highly developed. Indeed, it is the third largest metropolis in the whole of Ghana. Close to Takoradi Polytechnic, the Konsaworado flows towards the Buthia lagoon, creating an extensive, beautiful marshland. The Essei lagoon lies between Ekuase and Takoradi. It is located on the coast, about 200km west of Accra. The Metropolitan shares boundaries with Shama District to the east, to the north with Mpohor District, to thewest with Ahanta West District and to the south with Gulf of Guinea.
Fifty unregistered and unlicensed motorbikes in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis have been impounded in a joint operation by the National Road Safety Commission (NRSC) and Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service.
The Takoradi branch of the Butchers Association of Ghana says the ultimatum by the Sekondi/Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly (STMA) to relocate to the Whindo Slaughter House before the end of the month is not feasible.
