Why I’m Running For
Simply because I believe in the Somali people! we are a nation blessed with abundance both in natural resources and the undeniable ingenuity and bravery of its people who have forged success from the depth of political turmoil.
I have worked to deepen democracy in Somalia throughout my professional life because it’s the foundation for a rule of law-based society that will unlock the full potential of the Somali peoples ingenuity and entrepreneurship.
To achieve this, there is a need for a paradigm shift in the relationship between government and people, to realise our nation’s true potential. A need for a new social contract between citizens and government that requires leaders who serve rather than being served.
This is the true test of leadership in overcoming corruption and inefficiency, a willingness to serve rather than expected to be served. With trust in ourselves and in one another, we can bring back Somali unity, and with Somali unity we can protect our people, secure our country, and achieve prosperity.
Therefore, I’m running for President.
