The Sagnarigu District with its capital at Sagnarigu is one of the six (6) newly created districts in the Northern Region in the first half of 2012. It was carved out of the Tamale Metropolis by Legislative Instrument (LI) 2066. The district was inaugurated on 24th June, 2012. One of the reasons for the creation of the district was to redirect developmental projects to the communities north and west of the Metropolis (now Sagnarigu) which were relatively less developed as compared to the urban areas in the Tamale Metropolis.
The Sagnarigu District has 79 communities, comprising of 20 urban, 6 peri-urban, and 53 rural areas.
