Since then he absolutely developed this country largely in terms of infrastructures and governmental building capacity of all departments that have been improved quite correctly. The Somaliland foreign and home affairs strengthened and some certain important changes took place, like negotiations of Somaliland and Somalia commencement which is very nearly successful and fruitful, this scheme was always very sensitive but we have taken very significant approach and direction that will bring positive consequence for this nation.
