“There are events that come to pass seldom and sticks in your memory forever”
Yesterday 12/07/12 ARDAA held a general meeting at Rays Hotel, Borama Somaliland finalizing precedence meeting sessions and consultations that was taking place in Borama and Hargaisa in the last few days together with the merchants, sultans, intellectuals, educators and the government members. ARDAA entitled this meeting “ARDAA, the coming home convention, 12/07/12” and as I encountered ARDAA came home with their heads full of plans.
The participants of the meeting were widely dominated by ARDAA members from diaspora and local, Merchants, commercials, companies, government delegates, educational institutions, sultans and the civil societies.
ARDAA presented well organized presentation and demonstration comprising slides, actual and tangible genuine pictures screening the current situation and circumstances of Lughaya Sea fishing port. They also demonstrated how societies living there are struggling with the high wave tides of the red sea when they are exporting livestock from Lughaya to Yemen and importing diesels, petrol and other necessities from Yemen to Lughaya district. This has given the participants thoughtful understanding of the goals, vision and mission of ARDAA for its short term and long term strategic planning towards Lughaya Sea fishing port and Lughaya port.
Furthermore ARDAA has introduced to participants two important memberships of the ARDAA chapter of Borama that will take and care the task at the hand. Eleven of these memberships are composing of the board of directors and four memberships constituting executives and the management team counting with a project manager.
The people of great Awdal have been dreaming for getting their own port since 1991, when the name of Somaliland was reborn, nonetheless that dream has never became true apart from talking rumors and the people’s expectation was engrossed on the government actions and implementation, which has later became clear to the people of this region that Somaliland government doesn’t even share the idea and the vision let alone building sea port for them.
The establishment of ARDAA and the mutual understanding of its members and the Awdalian people have made that dream alive for the second time, though numerous people still reflect that this dream is far from being impossible forget about possible imaginations, because the constraints are uncountable together with the black dusky heavyweight stones of Golis chains that has isolated and separated Borama from its sea borders. Yet again the impossible is I’m possible and I believe and contemplate what applied researches and the human’s experiences have proved and demonstrated “no matter how things are complicated and obstacles are overloaded, if a people or a nation have one asset, all other things are nothing but action required activities. This asset is the most prestigious and valuable asset that the almighty God has conveyed in to this world and this is what intellectuals call the human resource”. Yeah, brain and action oriented human resource is the one thing that matter for all. Look the Great Wall of China and see the undersea train road connects Britain to France.
I believe if ARDAA continue to have the commitments they have showed and the support of its people then Lughaya sea port will become a piece of cake and Lughaya fishing port will became a half of piece of cake Insha Allah. I remember few years back when ASARDA was formed and came up with the dream of building the regions infrastructure and many of us haven’t shared the view with them but today let alone Awdal, whole Somaliland got the believe that they can shape their own roads without government and external supports and the vision and mission of ARDAA is no different from that.
ARDAA be known that, the dream you are dreaming is the people’s dream and the road it leads you is the less travelled road and if you continue to travel on that present road, I assure you, that a day will come, that you will be reminded as genuine heroes and idols of this state and your names will never be perished from the history of Awdal. Nevertheless, if you ever turn and take any other road that may mislead your dreams and the people’s dreams, then you will be disremembered and your preceding engagements would not be different from many previous tale stories like “FANOOLE” project. I pray and hope that the later will never transpire you and you will be better remembered than the presidents of this country Insha Allah. Long live ARDAA, Decent and Honest Actions ARDAA forever.
