The Tamale Metropolitan Assembly has revealed that, the upcoming Mayor’s Awards Scheme is aimed at recognizing the contributions and hard work of individual personalities and companies in the metropolis.
The awards night is an initiative of the current Metropolitan Chief Executive, Hon Iddrisu Musah Superior. This is the maiden edition of the awards.
According to the Mayor, this will recognize the efforts of all Assembly members, former MCEs of Tamale, and key institutions and investors in the northern regional capital, Tamale. It is expected to be held on June 30, 2018.
The Tamale Metropolitan Assembly (TaMA) believes that, the Mayor’s Excellence Awards is fantastic idea. The Mayor indicated that
“we cannot wait to “complete” building our infrastructure, etc before we recognize the unpaid contributions of people and institutions who have and continue to support the development agenda of Tamale.”
Musah Superior added that “recognizing and rewarding the citizens’ contributions and accomplishments to the development of Tamale is an important part of creating a quality culture.”
He said further that, when people in their various communities, Electoral Areas and professions know that their efforts are appreciated, it increases their self-esteem and encourages them to do more.
“When citizens voluntarily work to support our efforts as local government to develop the city, civil participation in community work increases and attitudes are improved towards keeping the community “healthy”; thereby increasing productivity” he opined.
Meanwhile, earlier on, Mr. Musah Superior invited his predecessors for a stakeholder dialogue meeting on the development of the Tamale city.
