“Tamale Metropolitan Assembly just confirmed me as the MCE with 100% vote.
I have always believed in the uniqueness of our purpose, and I have always endeavored to extend a hand of friendship, gratitude and collaboration with people I work with, movements I belong to, and to persons who repose confidence in me.
First of all, I am grateful to Allah for his endless mercy and favors. Secondly, I wish to send my undoubted gratitude and appreciation to the President of Ghana Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo for nominating me for the role of Mayor of a city I grew up in, and have grown to love, cherish and revere. The president did this with benefit of the knowledge he has about my competence, and I am assuring and reassuring him of my commitment to deliver excellently.
To my family, I can never be grateful enough for your support and endurance all these years. Special thanks to my loving wife, and our wonderful kids.
The Chiefs, clergy and clerics, the elders, youth, formal and informal institutions within the Tamale Metropolis have been exceptional with the warm reception they extended to me since I was nominated, and through every step of the way. I cannot thank you all enough.
To the delegates who have gathered today to finally legitimize my role, I wish to assure you of my cooperation, and collaboration as we work to build a great Metropolis. I shall count on you all in every step of the way, and I trust we will be working in an atmosphere of peace, mutual respect and dedication to sustainable development.
Thanks so much. God bless our homeland Ghana, God bless Tamale Metropolis and God bless you all. Thank you”
