Nigest Ethiopia started this petition to United Nations and

The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), formerly known as the Millennium Dam, is under construction in the Benishangul-Gumuz region of Ethiopia, on the Blue Nile River.

This mega project will be one of the largest electrical power dams on the African continent.

Construction of the Grand Renaissance Dam started in April 2011 and will be completed in 2023.

Ethiopia have spent almost $5 billion dollars so far and this project is funded hundred percent by the people of Ethiopian and the Government.

The intention of building this mega project is not only serve Ethiopia, but also Sudan, Egypt and other African Nations.


The reason of building the GERD is not to #hurt our neighboring countries whatsoever.
but;

* To generate a Hydro Electric Power for 60% (55 million) Ethiopians who are currently living under a darkness.

* To develop manufacturing and create jobs for millions of Ethiopians who are educated yet they’re unemployed and living under the poverty line because of lack of job opportunities.

* To prevent Climate Change, Drought and Deforestation that’s happing due to unavailability of electricity power. Citizens have no choice but to cut down trees for the purpose of fire to cook meals and heat their homes for more than a century.

Ethiopia keeps saying over and over again that she has the legal and moral right to use her God given natural resources for her people to use. Yet, Egypt, Sudan and The West keep pressing and verbally abusing Ethiopia in unnecessary and an unprecedented way so she can stop building the GERD.

Ethiopia have emphasized numerous times that she wants to use her water resources in equitable and fair ways and don’t have any intentions to get into altercations with Sudan or Egyptbut actually to benefit All Africans by providing more electricity power.

Also Ethiopia believes that Africans matter should be handled by African Union not by the UN or the EU.

Ethiopia is always eager and willing to work with Sudan and Egypt to minimize their exaggerated concerns over the water using but at the same time she will stand for her God given rights, dignity and sovereignty rights also for the prosperous of her citizens as well as for ALL AFRICANS NATIONS!

Please, show your love, unity, courage and solidarity for Ethiopia.

Thank you so much❤️
Together, we can shine Africa❤️
