The Managing Editor of Dominance News, Fuseini Safianu has challenged Sule Salifu to prove that he will not be the puppet of the Northern Regional Executives of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), following his nomination as the Tamale Metropolitan Chief Executive by President Akufo-Addo.
Mr Safianu who expressed dissatisfaction with the appointment of Sule Salifu as Mayor of Tamale said he lost hope in the ability of the new Tamale Mayor nominee to work effectively, when he stated after his announcement as MCE that he was the candidate of the regional executives of the party.
“There’s no hope for Tamale metropolis when Sule Salifu becomes the mayor”, the controversial journalist told host of the Super Morning Show on Radio Justice, Mumuni Yirifa Yunus on Monday.”
Sule Salifu will fail as mayor because the regional executives will control him in the same way that they wanted to control Superior [the outgoing Mayor] and had problems with him”, Fuseini Safianu said.
Mr. Fuseini recalled that Musah Superior, the Outgoing Mayor of the metropolis, failed due to interferences from party executives.
Sule Salifu has been nominated as the Mayor of Tamale Metro and is awaiting approval from members of the Tamale Metropolitan Assembly.
He previously served as the party’s Regional Secretary, Regional Communication Director and Regional Director of the Youth Employment Agency. He was also a Regional Monitoring and Evaluation Officer at Ghana School Feeding Programme in Northern Region between 2006 to 2008.
Mr Salifu holds a Masters Degree in Organizational Development and a post-Graduate Diploma in Organizational Development both from the University for Development Studies (UDS). He also obtained HND in Secretary-Ship and Management Studies at Tamale Polytechnic (T-Poly) now Tamale Technical University. He is also an old Tamascan.
His appointment has been hailed by many who describe him as a grassroots person who will work for the betterment of the metropolis.
