Asalaamu Alekum my fellow Citizens.
“In the Name of Allah, the Magnificent, the Merciful”.
Today, I, Radwan Rayaleh Guelleh, would like to announce my candidacy for the President of the Republic of Djibouti in April 2011.
It is my sincere belief that President Ismail O. Guelleh, along with his party RPP, who have held majorities in the National Assembly for the last 11 years have failed miserably on their promises to develop our great nation.
It is also my sincere belief that the progressive point of view is the most likely source for true transformation, but that progressive efforts will be in vain if we do not stand up for our beloved people. As a progressive grass-root revolutionary, I believe that I can offer inside perspectives.
Over the coming weeks, with the help of my team, I will be publishing and outlining my campaign issues; and its practical examples of how to advance the movement.
I will also be developing a platform for my campaign to unseat President Ismail O. Guelleh, and I encourage all Djiboutians to read and watch through YOUTUBE . Let’s get this fire going!
I’m not really going to run for President just for the publicity sake; but I do care my people. I have also done grass-root work for the Djiboutian/Somali communities in Ottawa for the last 20 years; and I know I could make a difference if you give me the chance to serve you as your President.
I am going to launch a campaign as if I were back in the home-country. My hope is if my challenger allows fair and just election – I know I will eventually emerge – if not to actually win the Presidency.
It is time to light a fire and get more aggressive about getting the progressive message out!
What’s on your mind today my Brothers and Sisters?
