“From tomorrow, I will personally go to the front lines of the war and personally lead the Wehrmacht,” he wrote in a statement on Twitter late Monday, urging citizens to “lead the country at sacrifice” and join him. “Those of you who intend to be one of the Ethiopian children worth celebrating in history, stand up for your country today and let us meet on the front lines of the war.”

“Past and present, the needs and lives of each of us are below [the needs of] Ethiopia,” Abiy added. “We would rather die to save Ethiopia than live longer than Ethiopia. “

Abi called this push “the last battle to save Ethiopia,” and he claimed that these enemies were “prepared to build their own strength on Ethiopia’s weakness.”

On June 13, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abi Ahmed took a group photo in Addis Ababa.

The statement was issued after the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), the former ruling party of Tigray, claimed that its fighters had occupied two towns while advancing to the capital Addis Ababa, which was in the northern region. More than a year after the conflict broke out. nation.

One of the towns TPLF claimed to be occupied on Saturday included Shewa Robit, which is located approximately 220 kilometers (136 miles) northeast of Addis Ababa. CNN was unable to reach the federal government for comment on this statement.

When the Prime Minister is on the battlefield, his duties and the duties of other administrative personnel involved in the battle will be performed by federal and regional officials, who will “do their best” to oversee the development and management of the country.

“Ethiopia is the name of the victor,” Abiy concluded, “I never doubt that our generation will pay for it as a symbol of freedom.”

When Abiy won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2019 for ending the 20-year war between Ethiopia and Eritrea, he was hailed as a regional peacemaker. Now, he is presiding over a protracted civil war with the Tigray rebels, which many people think bears the mark of genocide.
