Faisal, who spoke on a number of issues, said the president reverted the country back to tribalism and nepotism and were therefore re-considering his presidency.
“If you do not abide by the constitution, I promise you will not be president for one night.” added Feisal Warabe.

Faisal said President Bihi had promised early last year that he would not sign the law and would not pass the Senate.
He also said that President Bihi changed when Hirsi became chairman of the Waddani party.
