Dear Youth of Somaliland,
You are the future of our beloved country! You are the ones who create the tomorrow of Somaliland. It is your ambition, your care and your vision that makes our country strive. It is this energy that a country needs to prosper and I see that in so many of you!
I think we all should concentrate this energy to create a better future for our home country – together and united.
My party and I are explicitly looking for your input, your feedback and your opinion. It is not necessary that we all agree on everything. Actually, we do not want you to agree on everything. It is this difference that makes up constructive discussions and since you know best what is important for your life, we ask you to contribute to our young but dynamic democracy. We ask you to contribute to our society by enabling an open dialogue. Fair but energetic and soulful.
We explicitly ask you to not only be interested in politics but to be actively involved as well. Please do not leave everything to the old. Democracy is about the will of the people and not about a small portion of the populous. It is your future! And therefore we would like to invite you to discuss with us, pepper us with questions and to tell us your opinion.
Join us in the upcoming Waddani events all over the country, let us know what you wish for your Somaliland’s future and how you would like to contribute to it.
For the coming presidential term I do not want to promise anything I can not keep. I only promise you one thing: I will do my best. I solemnly swear to do my best for being your servant and to make this country flourish, prosper and a home for you for the next 100 years.
Abdirahman Mohamed Abdullahi
