Re: Submission of Presidential Candidacy Application.
Enclosed is my resume. I am seeking the challenging responsibility of leading Somalia as the head of state. I have valuable experience serving the public, confidence in my leadership potential and through understanding of the needs of post armed conflict Somalia. The people of Somalia feel that war torn Somalia, under the burden of social, economic and political disintegration needs a capable, insurmountable leader. The social, economic and political woes afflicting the country needs a leader who is committed to the cause of picking up all the pieces and rebuilding Somalia.
My twelve point agenda for Somali is to:
1. Stabilize and maintain the country’s judiciary system.
2.Secure Somali unity and support of all Somalis in rebuilding the country.
3 Disarm all armed groups within Somalia
4. Ensure to provide proper child-protection and disabled.
5. Promote and maintain proper healthcare and rehabilitation facilities.
6. Demobilize and reintegrate back into Somali society every affected man, woman, boy and girl.
7. Promote regional governance for recognition of unity in our diversity.
8. Revive the Somali economy
9. Promote universal education for all Somalis.
10. Promote women’s social, economic and political empowerment.
11. Create employment opportunities and instill self reliance skills in Somali nationals
