Strides Towards Peace, Reconciliation, Earns Ethiopian Prime Minister Nobel Prize
The 2019 Nobel Peace Prize has gone to the Ethiopian Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed for his efforts aimed at achieving peace and international cooperation.
The winner, according to Nobel Committee, is said to have put up decisive initiative to resolve the long standing border conflict with the neighbouring Eritrea.
The Prime Minister’s efforts are also said to have been embraced by President Afwerki, a development which was key in formalizing the peace process between Ethiopia and Eritrea.
In essence, the peace efforts greatly helped to end 20 years of boarder conflict between the two countries.
According to international observers, more than 3 million Ethiopeans and about 1 million refugees and asylum seekers have been displaced over the years as a result of the conflict.
