First, the president signed an oil deal with a company called Coastal Exploration without federal leaders are present without Somalis agree.

The agreement that he signed is the agreement former Somalia president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo’s government rejected and he issued a letter and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Somalia which issued a letter saying that there is no agreement between Somalia and Coastal Exploration.

That agreement was the agreement that Hassan Sheikh criticized former president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo and accused of committing treason against the nation. Hassan Sheikh signed the same agreement. If Farmajo signed it, it is treason if Hassan Sheikh signed it is ok to steal with his family Somalia resources.

According to The Guardian newspaper reported Serious Fraud Office to investigate firm’s Somali oil contract bid A company chaired by the former leader of the Conservative party made payments to a Somali government adviser as they were agreeing a lucrative oil contract with the troubled east African country, the Guardian has learned.

Soma Oil and Gas, which is chaired by Lord Howard, paid legal fees to the independent advisory group, Petroleum Regimes Advisory (PRA) as PRA was negotiating on behalf of the government of Somalia.

A spokesman for the campaign group Global Witness said that payments to PRA would raise serious questions about conflicts of interest as PRA was meant to be negotiating solely on behalf of the Somali government.

The Serious Fraud Office raided Soma’s London office after receiving corruption allegations about Soma’s activities.

UN monitoring group warned that the oil and gas deals signed by the Somali government were “likely to exacerbate legal tensions and ownership disputes and stunt the transparent development of Somalia’s oil and gas sectors”.
