Ghana – Why people from the Volta Region are called number 9…

It is common to find Ghanaian calling their fellow citizens from the Volta Region number 9.

The reason is that in 1957 (the year Ghana attained independence) during the first-ever Miss Ghana Beauty contest, the Volta Regional representative, Monica Amekoafia was contestant number 9 in that year’s beauty pageant.

Born in 1934, the then 23-year-old Monica eventually emerged the winner of the Miss Ghana beauty Contest in 1957.

It was her number that brought about the name number 9 for the people of the Volta Region.
