Information reaching the savannanews24.com indicated that the Metropolitan Chief Executive of Tamale, Mr. Iddrisu Musah Superior has been nominated for the Best Africa Mayor award in this year’s edition of the West Africa Achievers Awards organized by the West African Regional Magazine.

The nomination of Mr. Superior follows his incredible performance as the Mayor of the Tamale Metropolis, including bringing sanity and enforcing discipline in the Metropolis.

Mr. Musah Superior has won the hearts of many people in the metropolis after he decongested the central business district of the Metropolis, an exercise many think it was impossible to achieve.

The Tamale Mayor whose heroic actions gave him an accolade “Mayor 1” did not stop at the business district but went further to crackdown criminal activities in the Tamale forest and notorious “bases” within the city. Criminals including armed robbers and drug peddlers were using the Tamale forest as their save-haven.

The Tamale Mayor courageously led a combine of Military and Police in the crackdown that did not only save the forest from criminal activities but also rescued a lot of young people between the ages of 11 to 18 involved in the usage and peddle of drugs.

Again, Mr. Superior is showing more leadership through collaborated efforts with the international community to bring the much needed development to the people of the Tamale Metropolis.
