The Leader Of Somali Regional State In Ethiopia Resigns

The long-serving leader of Ethiopia’s Somali regional state has announced his resignation after the Federal forces have raided and seized control of his seat in Jigjiga city recently.

President Abdi Mohamud Omar stepped down as negotiations with the Federal government of Ethiopia based in Addis Ababa, according to the sources.

His Finance minister, Ahmed Abdi Mohamed, 32, has been appointed as president of the regional administration to replace the outgoing leader.

Omar has been under pressure since the Human Rights Watch report on the abuse against the inmates held at jails in his region was published last month.
