Oog town (Somali Commentator) – A large entourage of government officials led by President Silanyo has paid a working visit to Las Anod. KULMIYE chairman, Mr. Muse Bihi Abdi who also happens to be the party’s flag bearer and Presidential contender also made a whirl-wind tour to the eastern regions that fall under Sool and Saraar Regions to mobilize the electorate for the ongoing registration processes.
This trip covered major districts, whereby the Kulmiye chief and the leaders in his entourage made passionate and patriotic appeals to the members of the public to register themselves en masse such that our democratic practice may be more impactful hence bear real fruits.
He was flanked by amongst others, the Deputy Chairman of Kulmiye Mohamed Kahin, MPs including Saleebaan Bukhari and MP Ahmed Duale and several government and ruling party officials.
He was clear about the fact that what the people and this country had achieved all along would be jeopardized immensely.
The Kulmiye flag bearer told the masses that the tour was not one of political campaigns but one that was concerned with nation building.
“We are not campaigning but on a tour to build the nation”, he said, and added, “but when the registration is over and political campaigning starts, we would be back with each party selling its policies hence, you, as the electorate reserve your rights of choices”.
Upon reaching Oog town, the entourage thanked Oog residents for their warm welcome. The deputy chairman of the ruling party, Mohammed Kahin stated that his party will always recall the heartening welcome they received from their supporters in Oog. Mr Kahin also pointed out that their main objective is to urge the residents to register themselves.
Expressing his gratitude to Oog residents, Mr Bihi, Kulmiye’s flag bearer said, “I would like to thank you for your warm welcome. I rejoiced to see such rigid support. Our main objective is to participate the registration exercise which will be kicked off in this region. What is the purpose of the registration drive? A simple answer is the selection of an apprentice leader that works the unity and the togetherness of his society.”
Said he, “Unity can bring about the brotherhood of all Somaliland people from Oog to Borama, from Taleh to Zaila. When Kulmiye came to power, it strengthened that unity by setting up a strong interconnected people who are brothers and sisters although they live different, remote countries.”
Lauding the incumbent president of Somaliland H.E. Silanyo, the presidential nominee for Kulmiye party, said, “Our respected leader who founded this party (Ahmed Silanyo) has dramatically brought a change that lead our people to the prosperous path. His achievements are remarkable and the history will note that. Of course, he taught us a great lesson and we should follow his footsteps.”
