Some concerned youth of Northern Region have petitioned Tamale’s Mayor, Hon Sule Salifu, to repair all faulty streetlights in the Greater Tamale area.
According to the petitioners, “the issue of poor street lighting in Tamale metropolis is an age-old phenomenon that is fast becoming a threat to the ancient tranquility Tamale people have enjoyed.”
“Most streets in Tamale are plunged into darkness when the night arrives.
This worrying development does not only rob Tamale of its beauty, but creates an enabling environment for crime to thrive” the petition added.
According to Prince Barak, a social media influencer and one of the petitioners, the non-functioning streetlights have become a security threat to the metropolis, requiring the Mayor’s immediate attention.
Mohammed Awal Khalilillahi Alaafeilana, one of the petitioners, stated that they are confident that the Mayor will listen to their plea and take the necessary steps to address the threat.
