The president's congratulatory statement read:
I , hereby extend my congratulations to Mo Farah who is a son of both Somaliland and Great Britain, on his success in winning a second gold medal for team GB at the ongoing London Olympics games.
On my own behalf and that of Somalilanders, I further praise Mo Farah on his international success in winning Olympic gold medals at both 10,000 and 5,000 metres which have not only won him personal recognition but accolades to both his adapted country of Great Britain and his original mother country of Somaliland.
I pray that God may facilitate for him similar successes in the future as these current achievements have elevated his mother country of Somaliland a notch higher in the international limelight.
Finally, I urge all Somaliland youths to abstain from indulging in destructive lifestyles and emulate the achievement of Mo Farah who is a perfect role model whose attainment is not only for personal but national and international glory.
