MOGADISHU (Somali Update Online) — Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed Farmajo has said that he has been keenly following the concerns of the leaders of the federal member states, and in effect underscores the need for closer cooperation between the Federal Government and the Federal Members States to achieve the hope of peace and prosperity for our country.
On Tuesday, the five Somalia's local states' leaders called for review into the conduct of the central government in Mogadishu, in what seems to be growing rift between President Farmajo's Federal Government and the clan-based federal member states, following two-day gathering in the southern port town of Kismayo.
"I want to remind you all that we must acknowledge that our country is on the path of recovery, and the only way we can achieve full recovery is through cooperation. We must therefore all strive for the greater good of this country and be true to the oath that we all took to put the country first.”
President Farmajo acknowledges that in a nascent federal system, there would be challenges and that must always be solved amicably through dialogue while remaining faithful to the constitution.
The president remains confident that all concerns will be resolved, and that leaders would remain true to the pledge of putting the interest of our country before anything else.
