Many of those who enter the AAU campus are PP cadres parliament members who are claiming to be making researches per PM Abiy’s order for them to come up with methods of how to salvage the ethnic based constitution of Ethiopia so the EPRDF constitution will not be replaced by another constitution such as the Sidama State drafted constitution of Ethiopia.
