President Musa Bihi Abdi on Monday has hosted the leaders of opposition parties, UCID & Wadani, Faisal ALi Warabe & Abdirahman Irro at the presidency.
The President and the two opposition leaders have discussed issues of high importance and reached a common understanding of issues raised.
They have seen eye to eye the following points:-

The President and the two opposition leaders have further consented to return to their parties for further consultations.
Finally, the President and the two opposition leaders agreed to hold further meetings later to address the unfinished business. The Mediation Council had issued three point resolution. 1.
