Bosaaso Should Accept President Deni 's Peace Offer

t Deni and build back better But first foreign fighters who had a hand in the conflict must be scrutinized and held responsible. SAHAN Research and Halane-based Vates had a role in the violnce that aggrevated it.  Both incited violence by their stiring and manipulation of Boosaaso conflict at its initial and middle stages, respectively. SAHAN, through its Somali Wire that whipped up emotions in their characterization of the conflict actors.  Vates, through demeaning one actor  by depicting it as down and defeated, and urging the other continue with its violence and break it. Both SAHAN and Vates, foreign fighters on Somalia, should also reap from the violence that they sowed.  Between us Somalis, we all saw what happned in Boosaaso.  It’s not time to apportion blame after the courageous call for stepping back from violence to give peace a chance.  Cowards, criminals and dimwits will term Deni’s recorded video message of non-violent means of resolving the conflict cowardice

2023 IS A HARVEST TIME FOR THE PDP AND ATIKU ABUBAKAR, IF, AND ONLY IF........

By: Dr Sani Adamu  I wish to begin this piece with a question. What is the goal of PDP by 2023? What is it that needs to be accomplished? What are the political parameters or constraints towards achieving the goals in 2023? Who needs to be involved? What are the assumptions? What could come or get between PDP and Success? I will also attempt to provide a few answers to PDP by declaring that “PDP, Know what season we’re in”. How can I tell PDP the season it is used to years back has ended? Because the GRACE that ensured electoral victory in the past is no longer there? What was once easy, is now hard. The PDP can only be fruitful in its season. That is where Blessings and Success occur. The Party can’t just do it whenever it wants to. It must be in God’s appointed time. When the right season comes, its effortless for a tree to produce what is stored within it. Spring, Summer, Autunm and Winter are the seasons the PDP have experienced. In this next round of electi
