Well, well, my fellow Somalilanders, brothers and sisters all eyes are on the forthcoming president Ahmed Silanyo’s cabinet reshuffle though it, is fair to say that Mr Silanyo’s cabinet are mainly from the Somaliland diaspora Community, they’re, degree holders doctors and even engineers while this is a positive move by president Silanyo’s administration and the country at large, Thus recently there have been a lot of talks, speculation and debate about foreign minister Dr. Mohammed Abdillahi Omar lack of experiences in foreign affairs and in the diplomatic arena, is a major concern amongst the Somaliland diaspora and intellectuals.
The current foreign minister Dr. Omar does not seem to have, the relevant skills, expertise needed to lead this very important department at a time of global challenges and Somaliland’s desire for international recognition.
Since his appointment as a foreign minister by president Ahmed Silanyo exactly 2 years ago Dr., Omar have, shown that he is not very good communicator (public orator) in order to sell Somaliland’s case for international recognition, he also have made, so many contradiction when holding talks with the weak outgoing TFG government based in Mogadishu.
In conclusion I think that president Ahmed Silanyo should move Dr. Omar to another ministry department like planning or health, don’t get me wrong people Dr. Omar is very reliable his motive are good but Somaliland foreign minister needs to be a heavy weight,
