The creation of new regions according to Mr. Stephen M. E. K. Ackah requires very vital collaboration between the Regional Integration Ministry and Local Government Ministry.

According to the Minority Member on the committee of Local Government and Rural Development, the creation of the new regions should have been under the Local Government Ministry.

The MP who was speaking with in an interview further added that the Regional Integration Ministry cannot work without collaborating with Local Government Ministry.

He stated that, at the end of the day, the regions which are yet to be created, if they should come into force would have districts which would have to work as coordinating councils supervising those districts that are under the Local Government.

According to Mr. Ackah the Local Government and Rural Development Committee is yet to be involve in the creation of the new regions.
