Provisional figures from the Ghana Statistical Service puts Ghana’s current population at 30.8 million.

This forms part of the outcome of the 2021 Population and Housing Census, which started in June.

According to Government Statistician, Prof Samuel Kobina Annim, this represents a 6.1 million increase from the 24.7 million recorded during the last count in 2010.

The gender demography also revealed that 50.7% of the national figure are females while males make up 49.3%.

Speaking to stakeholders in Accra during the announcement, the Statistician described the 2.1% growth rate recorded as the slowest since independence.

Per the 2021 PHC computations, “Ghana’s population has grown five-fold over the past seven decades,” Prof Annim said on Wednesday, September 22.

Greater Accra remains the most populated area with 5.4 million people, compared to the 4 million recorded in 2010. It is followed by the Ashanti Region’s 5.4 million from 4.8 million recorded during the last count.

The Ahafo Region, however, has the smallest population with 600,000 people.

Meanwhile, the final results of the 2021 PHC are expected to be announced in November 2021.

But the Statistical Service believes that certified figures in the day will not vary significantly from what has been revealed on Wednesday.

A 9-year-old boy has been shot dead during a festival ritual in Awutu Bereku in the Central Region.

Two others are said to be in critical condition and have been sent to the hospital.




According to a deceased’s relative, Atta Kow was shot dead on Monday morning by traditional authorities who were performing rituals to purify the community ahead of the Awutu Awubia festival.

The man who gave his name as Joe told Adom News‘ Kofi Adjei that the people were supposed to be shooting into the sky but that wasn’t the case.

Joe said he was therefore amazed at how they ended up shooting the victim who he said was his mother’s only child.

“Oh, they have killed my son,” was all the deceased’s mother could say as he rushed in, wailing.

Joe said, together with his father, they rushed outside to meet a crowd surrounding the deceased’s body covered with a cloth with blood all over the place.

The Awutu Bereku District Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Joshua Semanyo who confirmed the incident said the suspect has been arrested.
