Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed announced today the successful filling of the fourth and final round of the Ethiopian Grand Renaissance Dam (GERD).

Through our collaborative efforts, God has helped us, the premier wrote on his Facebook page.

He congratulated all who have participated in the overall activities of the project by contributing money, time, labour, and prayers.

He also urged all Ethiopians to replicate such unity in other national issues.

“There were a lot of challenges. We had been dragged backwards. We encountered internal challenges and external pressures. We have overcome all these and are able to arrive at this stage. However, we have not yet completed climbing the uphill, though we have just arrived at the tip of the hill.”

The premier has also urged Ethiopians to continue their support until the completion of the dam.
