    Yes, truly he deserve such a honor by winning of 2019 Noble peace prize award winner. He surprisingly ended the long times enmity between the once sisterly Countries who were once the same in culture, language and politics. He also deserve such honor for bringing calm among already fragile peace among all nations in our country. May God bless H.E. Prime minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed. May all nations continue loving one another for better future. God bless our country
