The newly appointed Northern Regional Minister, Mr. Moses Bukari Magbenba was given a rousing welcome to Tamale by a number of people, including the Regional Executive of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Among the crowd included the Regional Chairman of the NDC, Alhaji Sumani Zakari, District Chief executives and party functionaries.

Mr. Magbenba was among the newly appointed ministers who were sworn into office by President John Evans Atta Mills at the Osu Castle on February 22.

The Regional Minister expressed appreciation to the crowd, stressing: "I am overwhelmed and humbled."

He promised to take care of the interest of every body in the region.

Mr. Magbenba said the NDC would make a positive development impact in the region to facilitate the renewal of the party’s mandate in 2012.

He said his administration would work in consultation with the party executives to achieve the development objective.

Mr. Magbenba appealed to the people of the region to celebrate the Damba festival in peace mindful of the Regional Security Council’s directive not to celebrate the Damba outside the Gbewaa Palace in Yendi.
