Degodia elders endorse Governor Ahmed Abdullahi for a second term

By Farah Adan:

Wajir Governor Ahmed Abdullahi’s re-election bid has received a big boost today after a section of Degodia elders in the County endorsed him for a second term.

The meeting held at the ICT conference hall in Wajir was attended by elders drawn from all the sub-clans of Degodia.

In his address, Abdullahi thanked elders present for showing confidence in his leadership abilities adding his administration will spearhead another five years of service delivery.

“I am humbled that you are happy and satisfied with my performance as Wajir Governor for the last four years” he said.

During the occasion, several elders volunteered to be part of the governor’s campaign team and help in engaging other communities living in the County.

Abdullahi will battle it out with former Wajir East MP and Saudi Envoy Mohamed Abdi Mohamud and Academician Salah Abdi Sheikh.

Mohamud was equally endorsed by another group of elders drawn from the Degodia, Ajuran and Ogaden clans when he met them separately during his recent campaign tour of the County.
