Since its inception, President Famajo’s government has focused on influencing political, social and economic leadership.
as evidenced by the following steps
1)Pollitacally:There was a massive campaign to oust the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Prof. Mohamed Osman Jawari he was eventually thrown out of the chair.
There was also the ouster of the South West State led by Sharif Hassan and eventually sharif Hassan abdicated himself to campaining for re-election of presidential of South west state. He convicted the involvement of FGS in the nomination of South West President Abdiaziz Laftagareen.
FGS was instrumental in the ouster of GalMudug President Haaf. intervened in the election of Qoorqoor as the President of the Galmudug State of Somalia
President Farmaajo has fired Prime Minister Kheyre while he was on trip in Galmudug state
FGS has organised several meetings that were focusing to unity of Five states but every meeting eventually ended up failure.
The two states of Jubbaland and puntland openly refused to comply with FGS.
These two regional states have concealment relationships with foriegns Government suspiciously –Notobly UAE and R of Kenya
