  1. I am very happy to see one day Somaliland one of the IGAD countries,and United Nations Europe USA and all african countries recognized as independent conuntry.b/c somaliland has right to be independent.Somaliland is peace, has its own currency, passaport,every 5 years free a fair election occurs and one man one vote. The military of Somaliland police and other security people actually are well organized and well educated not thugs not bundit. Even the courts of Somaliland is well. So we are requesting IGAD Countries to recognize Somaliland as independent country then tell other African countries that Somalilnand managed every criteria to be a international country.God bless Somaliland God bless IGAD Countries.but if we are the residents in lower shabele we are suffering from what the Somali government troops doing in our land because troops of Somalia predominately is Hawiye clan and they took our farm-land by force killing innocent people rape is a weapon of war,burning our villages. What Somali troops doing in our home land is totally against humanity so why IGAD Countries become keep silent as a grave.please please we need your help.we need the help of Ismail Omar Gele

    I am very delighted the observatory role played by the Republic of somaliland at the IGAD 2015.

    Somalia is been through very difficult time and it needs all the help and support it can get. getting helping hand from your own Big brother is not a shame. but a blessing. please remember Somaliland is there to help.

    IGAD is an important organisation and plays a vital role in many areas including security and coorporation among the nations that it serves. Somaliland strives for peace and prosperity.
