TAMASCO and TAMASCANs are extremely proud of all their achievements this year particularly for icing the cake with the conspicuous presence of the Father of the nation and his deputy to mark the year-end. Obviously, last Saturday marked another milestone in the annals of TAMASCO history, bearing in mind that in retrospect down memory lane, not many schools in entire Ghana are opportune enough for such a double honor of hosting both the President and Vice President of this Great country on their campus on the same day. It was a rare privilege of a singular honor that every TAMASCAN, old and new hugely cherished and are proud of. In fact, without doubt, this double blessing also emphasized and cemented the school’s importance as the ‘’Nothern Light’’ and academic pacesetter as evident in its remarkable feat in the recent 2021 National Mathematics and Science Quiz competitions.
As a Gambian, I am particularly honored and grateful to be associated with this Great institution, TAMASCO aka ‘’the Northern Light’’, which is a fountain of social discipline and academic excellence. At this juncture, my emotional and heartfelt thanks and appreciation goes to the former Vice President of Ghana, H.E. the late ALh Alieu Mahama (peace be upon him), who was the mastermind of my going to TAMASCO. I recalled back in 1993, I had already secured my Sixth Form admissions at TI Ahmadiyya (AMASA) in Kumasi, only to be informed that the late Mr. ALieu Mahama alias ‘Lidras’ wanted me to go to TAMASCO, his old school, and hence I ended up in Tamale. Thus, now sharing the same alma matter with great people like Mr. Alieu himself, the current Vice President Dr. Bawumia, Prof Joshua Alabi, Alh Gbadamosi, Dr. Muhammad Ibn Chambas, Hon Haruna Iddrisu (the Minority Leader of Ghana Parliament), and my dear O’Levels Econs. teacher at Yendi Sec Sch, Mr. Daniel Bukari to name but a few.
From the bottom of my heart, I want to extend my fervent thanks and appreciation to H.E. President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia for sparing their precious time to grace TAMASCO’s 70th anniversary and made us the enviable envy of others. Long live Great TAMASCO, long live Mother Ghana, and THANK YOU Mr. President for making us proud and humbled.
MANY THANKS to everyone who one way or the other contributed to this 70th-anniversary success.
