Re: Application for the post of the Prime Minister for the Federal Government of
Educational Background: Master of Science Degree in Environmental Engineering and Sustainable
Infrastructure at KTH – Stockholm, Sweden, Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering at Somali National
Service in Somalia:
I am a Somali Citizen Born in October 1963 in Hobyo, Galmudug. Second Nationality- Swedish. Married with
Five children – Served for more than 14 Years in a Senior Country Leadership and Management at the UN
especially with the International labour Organization (ILO) while also previously worked with Somali
National institutions. Implemented a portfolio of than USD 200,000,000 million programmes in the
country in close collaboration with Somali government institutions and the International partners including,
European Union, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland and Germany.
Closely worked and continue to work with Federal member states including Somaliland. During the period
of service with the United Nations managed to support local government institutions to boost economic
development and make communities stronger. I have been instrumental in developing the United Nation’s
Country Frameworks for Somalia while also contribution to key thematic areas in development and Policy
Work, Strategic Planning, negotiation and UN Reform. To support the people of Somalia, and together with
help of the international community and Federal Government of Somalia, and the Federal member states,
I managed to contribute to the:
• Improvements in local services, including new roads, schools and clinics
• Laws and agreements that define what local government is and that clearly delineate between local
and central authority, reducing conflict and saving time and money
• Accountable, effective systems for procurement, budgeting, planning and other government
• Increases in tax revenue for local councils brought about by more efficient and transparent
processes and by boosting local business activity
• Better-trained government staff who can operate systems for accountable planning, procurement,
budgeting and service delivery
• Open forums for discussion that allow citizens to take part in decision making, including regularised
community meetings, such as District Development Forums
• Community consultations ensure that more women are involved in planning, bringing new priorities
– such as maternity wards and children’s education – are incorporated into government plans and
Despite the current political situation in the country, I believe this leadership position will provide me with
the opportunity to continue to serve the people of Somalia in close collaboration with the respective Federal
member states – I further established networks and understanding with the key members of the
International community having worked with them for more than a decade. I believe that I am in a better
position to serve this great nation during these challenging times.
