Background of the District

The district used to be part of the Gomoa -Awutu-Effutu-Senya District Council before 1988. The Gomoa District Assembly was then created or carved out of the above District Council with the establishment of PNDC Law 207 of 1988, which increased the total number of districts in the country from 65 to 110. The district has two paramountcies, namely Gomoa Akyempim and Gomoa Ajumako with the seat of paramountcies located at Gomoa Assin and Ajumako respectively.

The Gomoa, a Fante-speaking group, constitute the majority of people in the district and they are mainly farmers. Gomoa-Maim is considered the traditional home of the Gomoa, a place where their ancestors first settled in the Gomoa area. However, there are pockets of Ewe speaking fishermen along its coastal beaches who engage in fishing just like any place along the region’s coastal stretch.
