Remove Musah Superior as Tamale MCE – Group orders Akufo-Addo

A pro-New Patriotic Party (NPP) youth group known as Youth for Justice and Growth in the Northern Regional capital, Tamale, is calling on the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to dismiss the Tamale Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE), Musah Superior from office.

According to them, the MCE takes decisions without recourse to the Regional and Constituency Executives which will ruin the party’s fortunes in the Region.

In a petition cited by GhanaWeb, the group allegedly stated that the MCE has ‘sold’ contracts to some NPP party folks at GHC120, 000 without offering them the said contracts to the ‘buyers’.

The petition alleges further, “Musah Superior rents stores to market women at exorbitant prices at the Aboabo market. A single unit store costs fourteen thousand Ghana Cedis (GHC14, 400) and this price goes for 48 months.”

The group also accused Musah Superior of not respecting party structures in the Region, therefore, takes decisions that in turn ruin the party’s fortunes within the Tamale Metropolis.

“Musah Superior has directed all school feeding caterers to pay 10% of their reimbursed funds to his office to enable him to support party activities and we want Hon Musah Superior to tell us clearly, one activity of the party he has ever performed or supported using funds accrued from the caterers,” the petition reads on.

PETITION FOR THE REMOVAL OF THE TAMALE METROPOLITAN CHIEF EXECUTIVE, HON MUSAH SUPERIOR

Youth for Justice and Growth wish to inform His Excellency, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo about some negative attitudes of our Metropolitan Chief Executive, Hon Musah Superior which is dangerous to the survival and forward march of the NPP in the Northern Region for which we have petitioned the President to remove the Metropolitan Chief Executive from office.

Often times, contrary to the decisions of the party, he takes decisions without recourse to regional party executives and constituency party executives under whose jurisdictions he presides.

Among the lots of misdeeds, the mayor perpetrates and for which we deem as unhealthy to our wellbeing as people and as unhealthy to the fortunes of our dear party are that, Hon Musah Superior has sold contracts to NPP Party members at exorbitant prices (over GHC 120,000) without giving the said contracts to the buyers. This behaviour is not only unhealthy but criminal and dangerous and we have evidence to this fact.

Secondly, Hon Musah Superior rents stores to market women at exorbitant prices at the Aboabo market. A single unit store costs fourteen thousand Ghana Cedis (GHC 14,400) and this price goes for 48 months only and again, we have evidence to prove this case just as in the above.

Thirdly, Hon Musah Superior has no respect for party structures and takes decisions which can ruin the fortunes of the party in the Northern Region and more especially the Tamale metropolitan area which Hon Musah Superior presides.

Lastly, Hon Musah Superior has directed all school feeding caterers to pay 10% of their reimbursed funds to his office to enable him to support party activities and we want Hon Musah Superior to tell us clearly, one activity of the party he has ever performed or supported using funds accrued from the caterers.

You can see clearly that these negative behaviours shown by the Metropolitan Chief Executive can ruin the fortunes of the party in the region as well as the two constituencies (Tamale Central and Tamale South) which Hon Musah Superior has no regards or respect for the executives.

We are therefore calling on his Excellency the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to hear our plea and dismiss Hon Superior as Metropolitan Chief Executive of Tamale to avoid further irreparable damage he is presently causing to the metropolis and the party.

Thank You.
