The Tamale Metropolitan Assembly voted Prince Mohammed, a retired Agriculturalist, as the Presiding Member (PM) of the Assembly, after polling 81 votes from the 110 votes cast.

The over 60-year-old Assemblyman from the Fooshegu Electoral Area, earlier battled with two other contenders, where he polled 66 votes against his two rivals, who also had 12 and 26 votes respectively.

In his acceptance speech, Mr Mohammed, who has 22-years experience as an Assemblyman, promised to work hand in hand with the Assembly to improve the socio-economic development of the area. He also commended his colleagues for the confidence reposed in him and promised to work to improve the interest of all.

The 97-member Assembly comprising 64 elected, 29 appointed and three Members of Parliament and the Metropolitan Chief Executive, was inaugurated on Tuesday by Mr Albert Abongo, MP for the Bongo constituency.

Mr Adongo urged the Assembly Members to desist from using their
positions to gain contracts or undue favours.

The Assembly Members were inaugurated after swearing the oaths of
office and secrecy administered by Mr Senyo Amedahe, a Tamale Circuit
Court Judge.

The Tamale Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) Alhaji Abdulai Friday, called on members to see themselves as agents of change for their respective communities and partner the development efforts of the Assembly devoid of political, ethnic, religious and traditional biases.

“If we continue to work together as a team, Tamale will be among the best cities where investors will troupe in to invest and thus create opportunities for our mutual benefit”, he said.

Alhaji Friday said the doors of the Assembly were open to everyone, who may have something meaningful to offer, towards the development of the communities.
