An ambiguous World Approach

Somalilandsun – At the moment, the world attention is pretty much focussed on the beleaguered, rudderless and undemocratic government of Somalia in one hand. On the other hand, the universal rights of the people of Somaliland for self-determination and statehood have been systematically ignored and thwarted by the same world community, particularly the EU, U.S.A, UN and AU. So we are witnessing that the World Community is rewarding the wrong man for his bad deeds (for his crime and systematic violation of human rights), while the same World Community turns its back to the good and honest man.

The people of the Republic of Somaliland have shown to the outside world their perseverance, resilience, nation spirit, value, belief and exceptional quality with respect to dealing with and embrace of universal norms and values regarding democracy, peace and stability. Somaliland should have been long time ago recognised by the United Nation’s State Members as a member of the Global Community. At least, the Republic of Somaliland should have been regarded as de facto Independent Nation. Regrettably, the World Community have systematically neglected and ignored this great nation. Time and again, the international community denied the right for self-determination and the aspiration of Somaliland people to determine their own destiny.

A government inspired by collective sense of social responsibility

Before the current Government of President Ahmed Silaanyo came to power, Somaliland seemed to be an anonymous and out of sight country that no one missed or noticed of its presence at regional and international political and economic arenas. In line with President Ahmed Silaanyo’s forward thinking policy agenda; based on reforming and redefining of Somaliland’s Socio-Economic and Foreign Affairs Policy, the President and his Cabinet have unquestionably put back our country on the right track. At the present time, our country is more and more valued and respected as a regional and global partner for peace, stability and democracy.

Less than a year, the Minister of Mining and Energy resources attended 3 major Energy Conferences: African Oil Conference in South Africa, Middle East Energy Forum/UAE/Abu Dhabi, AfricaDownUnder and Mining Exploration Conference, in Perth Australia. In a very accurate, civilized and resourceful keynote speech he presented the Somaliland’s case properly and pricely. With an elegant and breathtaking style the Minister emphasized the added value and necessity why the rest of the world should invest in and do business with the Republic of Somaliland. With the right tone and full of self confidence, he put forward the incredible natural resources in Somaliland which eventually, to a certain extent, can contribute to the regional and global economy.

Again we have there another smart, intellectual and committed minister within the government of President Ahmed Silaanyo. When the President asked him to accept the position, he did not hesitate for a moment. Simply because he knew that his country and people needed him. He is someone who never aims for self-enrichment or personal gain, but driven by sense of civic duty to serve his country and people. In his adopted country (USA) he had an admirable career and several managerial positions. He had a well-paid job, a very pleasant life; less pressure and frustration…. He left that all behind him, and chose an ultimate challenge to fulfil a ministerial responsibility for an underprivileged and not yet recognized country.

From deserted Ministry into Economically Vibrant Department.

The Minister of Mining & Energy Resources of Somaliland Republic Eng. Hussein Abdi Dualeh is so dynamic, committed and convinced for the Somaliland’s case and quest for recognition. Within the Cabinet of President Ahmed Silaanyo, he is one of the leading figures and driving force. In his ministry, (which previously was a tattered and deserted department) he implemented numerous reforms and innovations whereby the results are actually visible everywhere. Minister Hussein A. Dualeh is a member of a government that steadfastly is committed to fulfil its social responsibilities towards Somaliland citizens. This government is inspired by the trust and believes in their ability, collective sense of social responsibility, good governance, effort and transparency.

The Minister has worked out an alternative approach to speed up the long awaited recognition. This is a very clever approach and the right way to uplift the political and economic opportunity of our country. By raising the attention, awareness and interest of World Major Oil Companies and potential investors for the substantial natural resources in Somaliland and to get stuff out the ground in one hand. On the hand, the Minister encourages to maintain a warm contact, rapprochement and multifaceted cooperation (on economic, cultural and security relevant issues) with the Arab World; in particularly with the rich Gulf States. In a sense, this dual-track strategy can directly contribute to the mission for the much coveted recognition of Somaliland as well as delivering benefits for the economic prospects of our population

During the Mining Exploration Conference, in Perth Australia the Minister’s performance, in both style and substance, and the way in which he has presented and put forward the Somaliland’s case and cause is extremely interesting. He is a competent and experienced Mister who lifted Somaliland’s name, cause and case for recognition. He is on the right track to contribute to Somaliland’Eng. Hussein Adan Igehs long overdue plea for recognition.

May I take this opportunity to congratulate The Minister of Energy & Mining Resources of the Republic of Somaliland Eng. Hussein Abdi Dualeh for his brilliant engagement, endeavour and determination in fulfilling for his Ministerial duties. I utterly recognize the valuable and dignified tasks he is undertaking each and every day and his constant commitment and dedication to work for his country and people.

Wa Billaahi Tawfiiq

May ALLAH (SXWT) Protect the True and Genuine Patriot!
