Somalia’s Puntland president Abdiwali Mohamed Ali has appointed new deputy minister for ports and marine ministry after dismissing former official. Abdulahi Aadan was named the post in a statement released on Wednesday.
The position was vacant since the president sacked former deputy minister Abdirashid Gani Ali despite officials from the government and region elders have attended at swearing ceremony held in the capital Garowe.
The appointed official returned from UAE, where he was working as a Dr amid Puntland president wished him good luck for the new job.
The regional state of Puntland has enjoyed relative peace compared to Somalia which has remained in the grip of violence since 1991.
