Dr Abera mentioned that there are different knowledges and experiences which the intellectuals need to bring together. He indicated the difficulty to do everything alone and by emphasizing the need for different actors to collaborate. It was also mentioned that all the leaders of the world have advisors which is also needed for Oromiya region’s government. He cited that government devices different development policies, strategies and programs the effective implementation of which requires intellectuals, business communities, etc contribution. The existence of huge gaps in Oromiya region in making use of intellectuals was also indicated.
Everybody might have different ideologies, but we all need to make efforts to make use of the professionals contribution. There are problems of mixing politics, ideaologies, etc with the need to make contribution for community development.
