Somaliland opposition leader demands president’s resignation

Somaliland opposition leader and former presidential candidate Abdirahman Mohamed Abdullahi has demanded the resignation of President Muse Bihi for allegedly “betraying the nation”

Mr Abdullahi, known as Irro, heads the nationalist Waddani party and lost in November’s presidential election to Mr Bihi.

Speaking to the BBC Somali Service, he said President Bihi must “resign and seek forgiveness from the people or we shall sue him”.

He also accused former president Mohamed Mohamud Silanyo of violating Somaliland’s constitution by not signing several deals with the United Arab Emirates.

Irro did not specify which agreements he was referring to.

Last year, Somaliland signed a Berbera port deal with UAE’s DP World ports management firm.

“Silanyo violated the constitution and must be prosecuted and Bihi was party to this since he was also in Kulmiye party,” said Irro.

Irro’s party opposed the base agreement and voted against it in parliament.

The government has not yet reacted to Mr Irro’s demands.

Somaliland declared independence from the rest of Somalia following the overthrow of the late Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre in 1991.
