Press Release, September 26, 2018
Based on the Memorandum of Understanding reached between the OLF and ULFO on September 14, 2018 regarding the unity of the two fronts, a follow up discussion was conducted on the process of their unification. After having thoroughly deliberated on this very agenda of unity, delegates representing our two organizations have agreed that:
- The two organizations be merged effective as of the signing of this agreement; and that the name of the newly merged front be the OLF.
- In due course but within a fairly short period of time, the leadership and the organizational structure of both fronts be unified.
- Members at all levels of both organizations could embark on working collaboratively on common organizational affairs until the fronts are fully integrated.
Finally, the issue of struggling for Oromo national interest be our core objective; and that we endeavor to promote the unity that the Oromo people have for so long aspired; and we call upon all Oromo political organizations to equally respond to the demand of our people.
Unity is strength!
