Leaders in the northern region of Tigray warn they will stop recognising the federal government in Addis Ababa.
Leaders of Ethiopia’s Tigray region are stepping up their feud with the federal government led by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.
They say they will no longer recognise the administration in the capital, Addis Ababa, or its laws.

The warning came after the electoral commission delayed elections due in August because of the coronavirus emergency.

Tigray defied the federal government’s postponement order and went ahead with local elections, a move Abiy called “illegal”.

The argument is raising concerns Tigray’s leaders are laying the groundwork for the creation of a breakaway state.

  1. Chairman Mao, sorry Chairman Debre has missed the target day for announcing the founding of The People’s Republic of Tigray and its Central People’s Government. He was supposed to make the announcement on September 25 or October 1, 2020 to coincide with the 71st anniversary of Mao’s loud mumbling that few people understood. You missed it twice!!!! Slacker!!!! Then Tigray with its expected revenue of 150 billion from gold and another 350 billion US dollars from exports of gold, potash, lithium and natural gas(clean energy, baby) it is going to be the richest country in Africa with the GDP(PPP) of $71,000 US dollars. Its currency the Dedebit will be at par with US dollars, and it will be the most sought after currency in the world. This is nothing short of Shangri-La realized. I think I am gonna apply for the Tigrayan citizenship. What? I will be denied? You don’t know Diddly. Debre and I go a long way back in the days!!! He is my hommie!!!

  2. It were relief for the rest of ethiopian people if these biestes really break away from ethiopia. Of cours they should return the region like wolqayti and ray to ethiopia; Badme for Eritrea, and break away as soon as possible.

  3. I don’t necessarily agree the way is doing things, but the Almighty has reserved especial spot in the hell for the TPLF gangs . These remordeless and criminal honchos are bunch of hypocrites. Over 28 years they overloaded, looted and bulldozed everyone and every rule in their way like no tomorrow and then now they are talking about rules, rights, democracy, elections and so on. They had every chance, support and all means to do the right thing and fix all thise issue but alas they have chosen the other way everytime. The big losers in this siuation would be the Tigrain population that they holding for hostage as bargaining chip for their past corruption and crimes. Too bad.
