March 5, 2013 (JUBA) - South Sudan president Salva Kiir has issued a letter, directing the governor of Northern Bahr el Ghazal state, Paul Malong Awan, to resolve his differences between rival politicians through a political convention.

Kiir, in a letter dated 22 February, also supported resolutions of the Council of States - the upper house of South Sudan’s national parliament - which nullified the removal of the speaker of the state assembly, reinstating him and six other MPs who Awan arbitrarily removed last year.

“I am writing to relay to your esteemed office the resolutions of the Council of States and subsequent directive by the president of the republic to implement the resolution of the Council of States in its entirety”, partly read the letter, signed by the minister for the presidency, Emmanuel Lowilla.

The letter, a copy of which Sudan Tribune obtained, further urges governor Awan to implement decisions of the upper house, while assuring him of the firm support of the president.

The minister, in an interview with Sudan Tribune on Tuesday, confirmed he wrote to the governor on behalf of the president.

The reinstated speaker of Northern Bahr el Ghazal’s state assembly has hailed the president’s decision to support resolution of the Council of States.

"Everybody is happy. This shows that the president has taken [a] wise decision. I have been receiving calls since yesterday and I am still receiving more until now. People are expressing their happiness and congratulating the president for taking such a wise decision to uphold the constitution which is the supreme law of the land”, Aguer Wol Aguer told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday.

The speaker, who was dismissed from the assembly in July last year, says he is prepared to work with the state governor and other lawmakers in order to steer the state forward.

Aguer, a member of the SPLM was removed on accusation of insubordination and failure by the assembly to deliberate on the 2011/2012 state budget.

The speaker, last year told Sudan Tribune, his dismissal is linked to the stalled formation of a new state parliament, citing a power struggle within the state assembly. He also claimed that the dispute began in April when a group of around eight members plotted to drive him from his position.

It remains unclear whether the governor will immediately implement the president’s directive contained in the letter, which was reportedly handed to him last Friday, March 1.

Deng Ajou, who hails from Northern Bahr el Ghazal state told Sudan Tribune that the governor may not easily implement the order, further expressing fears that some of the lawmakers appointed after the speaker’s removal could oppose the new directive.

      Dear Awiellians in South Sudan and in the diaspora,
      Kiir is now trying to act like the President because it is time for campaign if you have not understood what is behind that letter,but on my part I call it as a good move though it is connected with vague politics, let’s see where this Mother Fucker Governor will be heading to again.

        YOU guys need to be careful with politics. Leaders or politicians are like kids. They do things to the surprise of others. Why did the president delayed the reinstated for years now? who owns Mading Aweil? Who own it? I mean, who is the owner of our entire state?

        the new constitution should be base on federal system where every state is responsible for it’s resources and developments. this will easly discourage the formation of large governments in the states with limited resources.

      We need that to happen,b,coz our president always like to issue the directives and he dont follow them up whether they are implemented or not by his subordinates across ten States of South Sudan.He is a president of the republic and not for that small group of pple whom are currently in power with him.He should not give other pple chance to be bullying on others n enriched themselves with ntl mone

      I condemned the reinstation of the former speaker of Northern Bahr el Ghazal because, when he was impeached ,may be he had done something wrong and if he was dismissed in vain ,therefore the governor have to be questioned because all mps were elected by their people and he cannot be dismissed without proper charges lebelled against him.try mr governor to pressurized your people when they do wrong.

        Paul Chadrack,
        You are too shallow-minded to explain what the two systems ( federal and unitary) of governance mean. And the more you try to assert, comes out from your mouth like a dust. Coward! Hiding on websites! Why not arrange conferences to lecture us that dusty knowledge you claim to have?

    Dear friends,
    the removal from political seat should not be a sin nor should it cause insecurity,just leave it and continue with your personal independent life big boss.

    Dear Commentators,
    In politics, there is no constant happiness and constant angry as the former speaker Mr. Aguer Wol said he received calls congratulating the president decisions and vice versa. Did Aguer hear what will the Governor said in regards to the implementation of this directives. The answer remain ambiguous and let not start celebrating before Magak comments and take action according
