“The people of Tigray are our people. We dare not to take measures that will hurt them and put us at regression.” Abiy noted.

The election held in the Tigray Region is unconstitutional and those who are leading the poll discern their wrongfulness for they are defying the procedural steps of the National Electoral Board of Ethiopia, he explained.
