Ethiopia: Mixed reactions, cautious optimism greet peace pact


By Akpo Ometan


Mixed reactions and cautious optimism have greeted the recent peace pact initiated by the African Union to resolve the lingering crisis in Ethiopia, The Difference reports.


Hostilities had broken out when the central government in Addis Ababa failed to respect the outcome of regional elections in Tigray and had instead declared the Tigray Peoples Liberation Front, TPLF government that had emerged out of the process as illegal.


The recent peace pact which prescribes a ceasefire has former Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo at the centre of negotiations and subsequent monitoring.


Analysts believe that the greater burden of compliance is however on the Abiy Ahmed-led government of Ethiopia which had in the past been accused by the TPLF of entering into a secret pact with the neighbouring Eritrea for the purpose of prosecuting the offensive.
