Quite diplomacy hard at work wisely for Somaliland!!! AU Ministerial Executive Council meeting, where the case of Somaliland was raised by Ghanain Foreign Minister Nana Akufo-Addo and African Union Commission Chairperson Prof Alpha Konare. Diplomatic colonialism will be defeated and truth will prevail!

Somaliland Foreign Minister Abdillahi Duale pictured here, after briefing the director of Ghana TV Mr. Kofi Bucknor. Somaliland’s case was strategically covered by Ghana TV, Africa TV (29 June), radio Joy FM (29 June), the print media, including Ghana’s most popular paper Daily Graphic (2 July, p. 5) and another well-known paper Daily Guide (27 June, p.14). The TFG’s Ambassador attempted to rebut Somaliland’s case with a weak response in the Daily Graphic (4 July, p. 5), when most heads of state returned home, just after midnight of 3 July.

The sun in Accra splendidly sets on another day of good, glorious work for the case of Somaliland. Alutua Continua!!!! May the struggle continue for justice!
