Hargeisa (The Horn)- The opposition National Party (Wadani) chief Mr. Abdirahman Mohammed Abdillahi (Irro) is expected to soon hand over the leadership of his party to the current acting chairman Hon.Abdikadir Jirde. The acting boss was on a private tour abroad and returned early this week to Hargeisa.
According to reliable news the Horn Newspaper received from some people close to the opposition chief confirmed that Mr. Irro is has an advanced plan in the offing to han dover the mantle of the party leadership to Hon. Abdikadir Jirde.
Hon. Jirde was elected the acting chairman in the National Party last executive meeting, however if Mr.Irro surrenders the party power to him he will automatically become the party chairman.
If for sure Abdirahman Irro appoint Hon Jirde to the party echelon of power this will put to rest the political witch hunt and diatribe that claimed Mr. Irro will not surrender the party chairmanship to anyone.
The new chairman if confirmed to be Hon.Jirde it will have a great political ramification on the National Party, which stands to attract the heart of the masses. It will be a political calculus. Just the other day National Party elected a new secretary general a Mr. Khadar Hussein Abdi.
On the other hand the National Party leader, Mr.Hirsi Haji Hassan has also jetted in from abroad. The coming days are expected to see the National Party stalwarts chart new ways for the party. Meanwhile, political commentators are closely watching the political gamble or call it arithmetic which WADANI will score.
