Tamale Metro launches Mayor’s Excellence Awards
Tamale, GNA The Tamale Metropolitan Assembly (TaMA) has launched Mayor’s Excellence Awards to recognise individuals, corporate institutions and organisations that have distinguished themselves in impacting lives of individuals and groups in the metropolis.
The awards are also to encourage others to partner with the TaMA to bring about social change and development within its jurisdiction.
The TaMA encourages members of the public to pick nomination forms of the awards from its office from now up to the middle of May to nominate individuals, corporate institutions and organisations within the metropolis that they believe deserve the awards.
Mr Iddrisu Musah, Chief Executive Officer of TaMA, who launched the awards at a press briefing in Tamale on Monday, said About 40 individuals and organisations will be honoured during the event, which is scheduled to be held in June 2018.
Mr Musah said distinguished personalities and organisations in the areas of education, health, water and sanitation, research, media, sports, science, arts and culture, social and economic empowerment amongst others would be honoured.
He said a Planning Committee had been constituted to lead the process of mobilising the needed resources for the event as well as put in place the necessary strategies to ensure the success of the programme.
He, therefore, called on philanthropists and corporate institutions in the metropolis to support the awards initiative to make it a success.
