  1. The release of Jawar Mohammad and other Oromo political prisoners must not be used by the regime to divide the Oromo people. We must work hard to educate our people the mischievous politics of Abiy Ahmed. Even if all Oromo political prisoners and their supporters are released, that is not our target. We must work hard to free our people and our land, the right to self determination up to secession must be respected. No one can deny that the release of some Oromo political prisoners is the result of OLA’s success, although the struggle of general public also adds to their release. All Oromo political prisoners must be released, but that mustn’t be used as excuse. National Dialogue without OLA participation is void, and never accept any request to disarm OLA.
