  2. Dr. Abiy is a gift for Ethiopians. He came to power at a time when Ethiopians were lost hope and fear internalized deep to heart. He saves the country from collapse. He sows and nurture a hope to all Ethiopians. He runs the country to peace & prosperity. Ethiopia has many challenges. There are ethnic clashes, displacement, deep rooted corruption, economic fraud, unemployment, inflation, and inefficient bureaucratic systems etc. He sits on the fire to save this country. Up to the all Ethiopians to stand and march behind him. I urge all Ethiopian not to loss this opportunity. We should support him by all so that our beloved country become frontier and shine.
