Ladies and Gentlemen,

unpo3Ethiopia is the tenth largest country in Africa and it is the second most populated country in Africa with projected population of 100 million by 2020. It has a number of nations/ nationalities with distinct culture. Ethiopia consists of peoples speaking more than 80 different languages (CSA, 2006)[1]. Currently, Ethiopia is classified into nine regional states. Oromia is the largest regional state in land mass and population. Ecologically and agriculturally Oromia region is the richest region in the Horn of Africa. Oromos are accounted for more than 45% of the population of the Ethiopian empire. The population size of the Oromo people and their resources makes Oromia the heart of Ethiopia. Failure and progress in Oromia regional state is grossly contribute to the failure and progress to Ethiopia.

ሁሌ ለሆዱ ሲል የሚከውን ደባ፡

ኦሮሞን ለመግዛት ደልሎ ለጥቅም፡

እያበቃ እንጂ ዳግም ተስፋ አይሰጥም፡

እዝያ በሀገር ቤት ጨልሞበት ቀኑ፡

በሰው  ሰራሸ ነገር ውሸት መበተኑ፡

አያፉርም ይህ ሆዳም አቀና ወደ ውጪ፡

ቅሌት ተሸክሞ ይህ ሀገር በጭባጭ፡

በደም የሰከረን አንደበቱን ይዞ፡

ፈጦ ቀረ  ዕንደ እንደጨት ጭራሹን ደንዝዞ፡

በፕላዛ ሆቴል መሽጐ እንደሌባ፡

አንተ ሆዳም ባንዳ የት አባክ ልትገባ፡

ሴቶ ወንድ ሆና ስታበላክ ህርም፡
