GOVERNMENT IN HOHOE MUNICIPALITY & SOUTH DAYI DISTRICT
In line with Ghana's constitution, Hohoe Municipal Area and South Dayi
District, where Hohoe and Peki townships are located, have local
governments. Local government includes all three arms of government: executive, legislature and the judiciary - represented by the Municipal Assembly headed by the Municipal Chief Executive; a parliamentarian and law courts. The two areas also have district and sub-district law enforcement units.
Most of the decentralized government institutions and infrastructure are based in the district capitals. But the various towns that constitute each district and municipality additionally have facilities such as health centers and educational institutions, including second cycle, vocational and technical.
As a municipal capital, Hohoe has the regional branch of Ghana's central Bank - Bank of Ghana. The town also has a branch of Ghana's commercial bank,
