Somali Prime Minister H.E Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed has called on Somali community members in Norway to return home and take part the rebuilding process of the country.
Speaking at a meeting with the Somali community members in Norwegian capital of Oslo, the prime minister urged the community to play their part in helping the government execute its plans and fulfill its promises.
“We are making progress towards free and fair elections which will allow Somali people to choose their leaders,” said the prime minister.
“We organized reconciliation conferences to give Somali people a chance to forgive each other and to establish inclusive federal states in the country in preparation for the 2016 elections.” He added.
Some members of the Somali community in Norway who spoke at the meeting with the prime minister lauded the government for its efforts to restore peace, security and good governance in the country.
Prime Minister Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed and his delegation arrived in Norway days after he met with Somalia’s international partners in London over the rebuilding of the Somali security sector and the national army as the war against al Shabaab militants intensifies.
