The pact between Ahlu Sunna and the TFG which was quickly endorsed by the African Union, the Arab League, UN Special Envoy and the Organization of the Islamic Conference was in tatters before it was officially signed. Faction led by the group’s foreign relations office, Sheikh Bashir Abdi Olaad, along with 26 members including Sheikh Abdiqadir Abdirahman (Abu Zakaria) condemned the agreement. This faction made its press statement in Abudwaq town, Galgudud region, in which they labelled the deal as a plot to disintegrate the group. They are of the opinion that the TFG power sharing agreement is an Ethiopian scheme to further its own interest  as there is no incentive for Ahlu sunna (galguduud wing) to sign an agreement with a partner, TFG, they consider as a weak link that share Wahabi creed with Al Shabab and Hizbi – Islam.  Read the whole artical
