Some youth of the National Democratic Congress in the North-East Region are pushing former Member of Parliament (MP) for the Yagaba-Kubori constituency, Alhaji Abdul-Rauf Tanko Ibrahim to contest for the chairmanship slot of the party in the region.
The party’s loyalists, particularly the youth and women, are breathing on his neck to acknowledge their endorsement, reasoning that he is better placed in the political spectrum.
They are pretty much convinced that Alhaji Ibrahim Tanko is committed to executing the NDC’s agenda 2024 to win the next general elections.
According to them, there is every reason for the NDC to win more parliamentary seats in the region and that they believe Abdul-Rauf has the skills and know-how to accomplish this task.
