Lemma Megersa was part of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s entourage to the United States where they meet with Ethiopians in three cities. He shared his experience.
He described it as “successful” and that he was personally touched by the stories of Ethiopians and the warm typically Ethiopian reception they offered. There was no difference on the basis of ethnicity so much so that even Eritreans showed up in the events to greet us, added Lemma Megersa.
“…If we are to create the new Ethiopia and transform it, if we are to build Ethiopia, we can never think about it while excluding our compatriots in the Diaspora…” says Lemma Megersa, president of Oromo regional State and one of the motors of change in Ethiopia.
And he calls on Ethiopians in the country and abroad that it is time to work together to change the lives of Ethiopians and the image of our country.
