Ethiopian government provided Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) wit an office in the capital Addis Ababa today.
Located in in Gulele area of Ethiopia’s capital, which is in the west side of the city, the office was, according to Fana Broadcasting Corporation (FBC), in OLF’s possession during the transitional government over twenty five years ago. OLF lost it when it fell out with the then powerful master of the ruling coalition, Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).
Citing Tolera Adaba, spokesperson of the ethno-natinoalist organization, the report added that return of the office to OLF was part of the arrangement made during Asmara talk between Ethiopian government officials (Dr. Workeneh Gebeyehu and Lemma Megersa to be specific) and the former.
Oromo Liberation Front (OLF)’s reportedly expressed gratitude for Oromia Regional State and the Federal government for honoring the Asmara agreement.
The organization recently reached deal with Oromo Democratic Party (ODP) to resolve differences peacefully and end resorting to armed activity within Ethiopia.
Before the recent agreement, federal and regional authorities have been trading accusations with OLF which refused to disarm fighters in some parts of Oromo regional state of Ethiopia which caused security crisis in Wollega and Gujji areas. The reason OLF gave at the time was that it was not part of the Asmara agreement.
