The prime minister also said there were no major challenges that that country is now facing more than the elections and the security which have been marred by internal disputes.

The PM's remarks come days after mediation efforts to fix the differences with the outgoing president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo who wants to stay in charge of the absolute power.

Farmajo whose term ended in Feb failed in his responsibility to lead the country to inclusive and universal suffrage. He handed over the election and security tasks to the PM last May.
