Saturday May 18, 2024

Garowe (HOL) - Puntland regional state leader, Said Abdullahi Deni, opposed the decisions made at the National Consultative Council (NCC) meeting held in Mogadishu last week.

Speaking to local reporters in Garowe on Saturday, Deni said that the four-day meeting lacked consensus and did not serve the interests of the Somali nation.

"A few people making decisions do not truly reflect the community's feelings; it is a waste of time. I hope common sense prevails and these individuals accurately describe the complicated situation in the country," said President Deni.

Deni also highlighted the insecurity in many parts of Somalia and the significant differences in opinion among the Somali people. He emphasized the need to work on uniting the people.

Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud concluded the four-day National Consultative Council meeting in Mogadishu on Friday, which was attended by the country's federal and regional state leaders.

The federal and Federal Member State leaders discussed security issues, endorsed amendments to the first four chapters of the constitution, and urged parliament to accelerate work on approving the remaining chapters, considering past agreements reached by the National Consultative Council.
