Some NPP youth within the Tamale Metropolis have asked the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to as matter of urgency dismiss the Mayor of Tamale, Mr. iddrisu Musah Supperior from office.
According to them, the continue stay of the Tamale Mayor will undermined the fortunes and gains of the NPP government.
Calling themselves Youth Movement for Justice and Growth of NPP at a press conference in Tamale said the attitude of the Mr. Iddrisu Musah is dangerous to the survival and forward march of the NPP in the Northern Region.
The NPP youth accuaes the Tamale Mayor of taking decisions without recourse to regional executives of the party and Constituency executives under whose jurisdictions he presides.
The group Secretary, Mr. Haruna Rashid alleges that, the Tamale Mayor is swindling some NPP members over contracts. ” Ladies and gentlemen, 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 behavior 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 simple unit store cost 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”.
The NPP youth also alleges that, the Tamale Mayor directed all feeding school caterers within the Metropolis to pay percentage of their reimbursement funds to his office to enable him 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 the funds accrued from the caterers”.

The Youth Movement for Justice and Growth of NPP said they already petitioned the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to removed Mr. Iddrisu Musah Superior from office.
Meanwhile, all efforts to reach the Tamale Mayor or any correspondence from the Tamale Metro Assembly result futile.
