Abdullahi Ali, member of the Somalia National Alliance Party (SNAP), talks about his political ambitions, saying he wants to become a reform leader for the country.
"I would like to put myself on a footing in Somalia, because the country has been suffering for over 25 years, as a result of religious conflict, warlords, pirates, etc. We are looking to put forward great efforts that principally involve myself, which would mean leaving the business and getting involved in the political fight in Somalia. I wish to become a leader for reform, especially in providing security for women and kids in Somalia, who are suffering a great deal. We would also like to introduce economic reforms, in addition to those relating to the security sector. There are many reforms I wish to implement directly in Somalia", says Abdullahi Ali.
