He met with him after serving with elderly, disabled and needy Ethiopians with holiday meal at Emperor Menelik’s Place. They met hours before the Prime Minister flew to West Africa for an official working visit to Guinea and Equatorial Guinea where he was awarded with the county’s prestigious Medal.

Abiy Ahmed said nothing is new except that things became more open during his administration. He said there had been cooperation with countries with the gulf region specially in the area of intelligence.
With regard to Seifu Fantahun show, he advised him do dedicate time to altruism and charity in addition to laughter.
