Speaking at the inauguration of the Agona Abodom Community Senior High School in the Central Region as part of his five-day tour, he said “I want to assure that districts will be created but in a comprehensive manner. They are not to be created individually on singly. We would look at what the population numbers are in the various districts and those that qualify to be created as new districts will be given new districts and I assure you that when this process takes place, Agona Nyakrom is not going to be left out, I can assure you, Nana."

“There are many requests for the establishment of new districts. It is not peculiar to Agona alone, all over the country I have received requests for creation of new districts,” he said.
