Addis Ababa, May 23 (WIC) –The House of Federation (HoF) today marked the 21st anniversary of Ginbot 20 (May 28), which marks the downfall of the Derg regime.
Chief Administrators of Regional States, Speaker of the House of People’s Representative, MPs and other member of the Federation attended the event.
Kassa Teklebirhan, Speaker of the HoF on the occasion said the victory has not only marked Ethiopian political transformation but paved the way to sustainable growth.
Some 21 years ago, Ethiopia was to fragment into small pieces; however, the longstanding unity of nations, nationalities and people has given an end to that breach, he said.
Glorifying the victories of the martyrs, he said the current generation has to payback the patriots by taking part in various development activities.
He added the current generation needs to defeat poverty by contributing for the successful attainment of the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) and Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam.
Kassa further urged the public to do their part in the efforts being made to control inflation and ever increasing living costs.
