Garowe, April 28, 2019 – Naive Somali politicians shall learn as those before them did in the hard way that, historically, in Somali politics nothing moves without the people of Puntland playing a critical role. Whether it was the struggle for independence, opposition to Somalia’s military dictatorship, establishment of federal system and regional states, re-construction and revival of Somalia’s State, it was the people of PUNTLAND leading the way.
