Somaliland nation cannot handle corrupt Politician to rule it, we see in the era of UDUB regime 2000-2010 what they did to Somaliland nation. Somaliland had made a lot of success under past president silaanyo administration and later elect his successor MUSE BIHI as the Somaliland president 2017. Somaliland surprises the world and earn global praise after the nation elect MUSE bihi. In the other hand the opposition party leader waddani Abdirahman irro his campaign sign is “although I can usurp power with tactics, I say elect me without any hesitation!”!!.
Therefore Somaliland nationals won’t allow the incumbent president to handpick a corrupt junta to rule Somaliland for the next generation. Our mentality guided by moral principles. It is our morality to tell us what is right or wrong. Morality means manner, character, and proper behavior. To begin with the subject article, in the event any person who knew IRRO started from the days of Somalia siyad barre regime in 80’s and till today, they will respond in a same manner which is IRRO a person difficult to understand, difficult to compromise, he believes that, he should all the right while others deserve no right. That’s why he lost the past elections.
The entire Somaliland living in the region’s are united against IRRO today in view of his attempts to divide his nation who are brothers, sister, aunts, cousins, father in laws, mother in laws, sister in laws, brother in-laws and tens of types of other kinship. I am in the opinion that above 95 % of Somaliland society share with what I have explained in the above, the nation elect a leader like MUSE BIHI because they know the oppositions what they up to, H.E. MUSE BIHI truly believes in democratic ideals, not the pithy lip service paid to it by detractors. A man not only highly educated in the Western discourse, but a true wise man in the best tradition of our people. A man his entire life is a testament to honesty and decorum and decency.
MUSE BIHI he was the choice and this nation and beat IRRO by 80,000 vote, Somaliland needs a new paradigm. Somaliland needs a new dynamic Politian in order to move on and that’s why they elect H.E. MUSE BIHI.
IRRO turned out to be a great chief “Aqil” a failed national leader since he ruled the parliament 2005. He permitted his own cronies to wallow in the same troughs. Corruption undermines democracy and good governance by flouting or even subverting formal processes. Corruption erodes the institutional capacity of government if procedures are disregarded, resources are drain off, and public offices are bought and sold. Corruption undermines the legitimacy of government and such democratic values as trust and tolerance. Political corruption is the use of power by government officials for illegitimate private gain. An illegal act by an officeholder constitutes political corruption only if the act is directly related to their official duties, is done under color of law or involves trading in influence.
To be honest no buddy knows what he wants IRRO ?sometimes his tactics and nothing but double face policy, his party make problems and standoffs to delay any upcoming elections, and we saw back in 2015 !. IRRO always scare to run in any election and that’s what happens in 2017 when he fails.
IRRO today controlled by others in his destroy party seems not fit to rule or to be the next president. The Somaliland people have come a long way in the past two decades. Somaliland is also a sea of calm in a region infested with terrorism, famine and clan and tribal driven conflict. IRRO is nothing but broken promises, he came short on people’s expectations. He failed to rule the parliament and become weak nothing but (pay me) to pass a law!. majority of Somalilanders went for a change and they deserve for a better life .the Mr. speaker IRRO well not be that choice for the next term 2022, Indeed it is the time for a new generation to take the helm of Somaliland leadership and supported ,that road is MUSE BIHI current president will plan it . and IRRO needs to resign and send himself back to his retirement home in Finland!.We all waiting for his resignation from the waddani and make a new candidate in the future!.
