Tamale — The United States of America (USA) Branch of the Tiyumba Youth
Association has donated registered motorbikes with certified clash
helmets, to some Cuban doctors working at the Tamale Teaching Hospital.
The motorbikes, worth over GH¢6,000, were purchased with contributions
from members of the association based in the USA.
Presenting the items to the Northern Regional Coordinating Council, Mr.
Yussif Mohammed, on behalf of the USA members, said the gesture was to
facilitate the movement of Cuban doctors offering medical services to
the people of the region.
Mr. Yussif assured the Northern Regional Coordinating Council of the
Association's resolve to offer more support to the region, in the health
and education sectors, as part of its social responsibility.
He, however, complained about the conflict situations that had polarized
the region, and regretted its consequences on socio-economic development.
According to him, northerners living in the Diaspora, who had intentions
of coming home and also inviting potential investors to do businesses in
the region, found it difficult doing, so due to the volatile nature of
Yussif Mohammed thus appealed to the youth of the region, to consider
formal education as their major priority, and refrain from allowing
certain individuals or group of persons to use them in meeting their
selfish and parochial interests.
Mr. Stephen Sumani Nayina, Northern Regional Minister, on behalf of the
Tamale Teaching Hospital, commended the Tiyumba Youth Association, USA
Branch, for its support, and promised that the motorcycles will be put
to good use.
He urged other concerned citizens of the region living in the Diaspora,
to emulate the shining example of the Tiyumba Youth Association USA
Branch, by contributing towards improving the living conditions of the
suffering masses back home.
