Jigjiga, 7 December 2013 (WIC) – Chief Administrator of the Somali Regional State hailed the results attained during the past five years in the areas of peace, development and good governance.

A symposium that will review the successes and challenges encountered after the endorsement of the constitution was opened here yesterday in connection with the 8th Nations, Nationalities and People’s Day.

Residents of the regional state had been victims of hunger and mass exodus for fear of the Derg regime in particular, he said.

However, following the collapse of the Derg regime and the prevailing federal system of government, the regional state managed to ensure the all round benefits of its people, he said.

He said benefit of the pastoral community from infrastructure development, education, health, potable water and livestock resources is increasing from time to time. The 150,000 villagized households are currently leading a better life.

Owing to the successive economic growth registered in the state, anti peace elements that had been operating in the region have been disappeared, he said. Residents of the state has now diverted their attention towards development activities  .
