The governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) youth wing in the Bimbila constituency of the Northern Region has hailed the appointment of Tanko Rashid alias computer as the Northern Regional coordinator of the National Youth Employment Agency (YEA).
A group calling itself the coalition of NDC youth in Tamale through a peaceful demonstration opposed Tanko Rashid’s appointment.
But the NDC youth wing in the Bimbila constituency has jumped to the defence of Tanko Rashid and touted him the best man for the job.
The Bimbila constituency youth organizer, Mohammed Mashud Abiola thanked President John Dramani Mahama for the honour done Nanumbas.
He implored the appointing authority to ignore the protestors and have confidence in Tanko Rashid’s capability to deliver his mandate.
Mohammed Mashud Abiola described Tanko Rashid as a time tested and intelligent politician and administrator whose credentials are unquestionable.
He recalled Tanko Rashid’s remarkable performance at the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) when he was the Northern Regional Manager.
“As youth, we are very much convinced and confident that the enviable experience Tanko Rashid alias computer has gathered as regional manager of the NHIA which saw massive transformation of the scheme in the region. “
“Tanko Rashid’s immense contribution to the fortunes of the NDC in the Northern Region is indisputable and his selfless discharge of duties as the Northern Regional Treasurer of the NDC and the regional Director of elections has not only afforded him the opportunity to boost his credentials as an effective and efficient party administrator but also a beacon of hope for the youth who zealously uphold the ideals and principles of the NDC government at all times.”
