Secretary – General of SPLM Pagan Amum has called on the citizens of South Kordofan to abandon all kinds of differences and work together in harmony for the welfare of the State.

Addressing a mass rally in Kadogli organized for welcoming Deputy Wali Daniel Kodi, who survived a recent assassination attempt, Amum urged the people to turn down any attempts aimed at dividing the citizens into either Muslims and Christians or African and Arabs.

He indicated the importance of cooperation between the ruling partners to implement the security arrangements protocol in both South Kordofan and Blue Nile States saying that the priority of the newly-appointed government was the application of the security arrangements protocol, restructuring of the executive and civil insatitutions.

Amum appealed to Kodi to abide by the spirit of cooperation with NCP for the sake of the stability of the citizens of the State who suffered a lot of marginalization adding that the sustainable development could not be realized without the availability of drinking water and health and educational services in the State.

He emphasized that despite the fact that South Kordofan is an oil producing area, it suffers from marginalization, backwardness and lack of basic services.

Meanwhile, Kodi accused an unidentified group in Khartoum in arming militias in South Kordofan State demanding the implementation of the security arrangements protocol and expediting the re-integration of Other Armed Groups (OAG) either in SAF or in the SPLA.

He vowed to restructure the civil service in the State calling for the necessity of coordination between the two partners.
