The Biakoye District is a district in the Volta Region of Ghana. It is one of the 27 new districts inaugurated officially on 29 February 2008. This district however did not get inaugurated on the day because of a court injunction. This followed what seems to be litigation between various traditional areas of the district. There is also disagreement at the citing of the district capital at Nkonya.[1]

One of the notable citizens of the District is Ave K. Kludze, a NASA rocket scientist who was honoured at Gbi Kpeme, near Nkonya Ahenkro during a festival of the people of the Gbi Traditional Area.[2]
