Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi is expected to pay his first visit to the country’s northeastern semi-autonomous region of Puntland.

Sources at Villa Somalia told Radio Shabelle that President Farmajo will travel to Bosaso in the coming days to attend an event to open a new Airport in Bosaso, the port city of Gulf of Aden.

The President is also scheduled to hold talks with Puntland President Abdiweli Mohamed Ali Gaas and other state officials during his visit in the region.

This will be the first trip by Somali President to Puntland state since his election in February 8, 2017.
