Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok has resigned.
This was announced during a speech on a State broadcaster late Sunday evening.
Addressing the military and security agencies, Hamdok noted that he had done his best to prevent the country from descending into disaster.
The outgoing PM said that the political crisis in Sudan can only be solved through dialogue that includes all parties.
“The transitional government faced enormous challenges, the most important of which are the distortion of the national economy, suffocating international isolation, corruption and debts that exceeded Sh60 billion dollars, the deterioration of the civil service, education and health, the destruction of the social fabric, and other difficulties that faced the national march,” Hamdok said.
He confirmed that the government’s approach has always been dialogue and consensus building in resolving all issues, declaring: “We succeeded in some and failed in others.”
