TAMALE: Assembly to decongest metropolis of hawkers


The Tamale Metropolis has outlined plans to decongest the Tamale Metropolis to drive away hawkers who have taken over some principal streets and drivers who park at unauthorised places.

Alhaji Abdulai Haruna Friday, the Metropolitan Chief Executive of the Tamale Metropolis, said the Assembly had elaborate plans to deal with street hawking and unauthorised parking.

He disclosed this in Tamale yesterday during a press soiree to brief the media about his stewardship and forge a relationship with the media for the development of the area.

Alhaji Friday said a stakeholder meeting was going to be organised tomorrow to deliberate with stakeholders including the street hawkers and the drivers on the need for the Assembly to carry out the exercise.

On the performance over the past four years, he said the Assembly had contributed more than enough in educational, health and sanitation sub-sectors of the Metropolis stressing that the area though had some challenges with sanitation, it was still one of the best in the country.

Alhaji Friday said the Tamale Metropolitan Assembly (TMA) within the four years had constructed not less than 360 different projects and created 32,000 jobs with the NYEP being the main instrument in job creation.

Alhaji Shaehu Kadiri, the Tamale Metro Director, said the Assembly had identified the media as the major ally in development and was grateful to have worked positively with the media over the years saying ‘the media is a partner in development’.

He urged the media to project positive aspect of the assembly and alert the TMA of any negative developments.
