Abiy Ahmed, along with Demeke Mekonen and Ambachew Mekonen, was in Dessie on Saturday. He held discussion with residents in the historic 19th century Niguse Michael’s Gibet Bet ( Banquet Hall).
Residents raised numerous questions including domination of ethnic Oromo in the Federal government positions.
With regard to domination of ethnic Oromos in government positions, Abiy said “It is not true, not even one percent. If that is true, I will resign within 24 hours.” Watch the video below (Amharic).
