The governor pointed to the experience Hadramawt experienced from forces from outside the province, when he said, “We have experience with such forces on the coast. When they were on the coast of Hadhramaut, they left the camps and fled by buses and let the terrorist elements control Mukalla,” referring to al-Qaeda militants when They took control of the city in April 2015 and fled.

Concerning the Barshid Brigade, whose members belong to other southern governorates other than Hadhramaut, the governor affirmed that this brigade “is affiliated with the second military region and obeys our orders.”

Bin Madi attacked the state of unity, and said: “We thought that unity would move us to the best, but we saw the opposite, and unity arose between two republican regimes, but now the system of government in the north is different.”

Bin Madi recalled the Hadhrami history, and said that it dated from 7 thousand years BC, and the name of Hadramout exists, and the last three sultanates of Al-Quaiti, Al-Kathiri, and Al-Wahidi were not separated from the name of Hadramout, so we reject dependency. as he put it.

On the issue of services and their deterioration in the province for years, Bin Madi said about the issue of electricity that it is “the black hole of the state,” and continued, “In the coast of Hadramout, we do not have any electricity for the state except for the Al-Shihr station, and the rest is purchased energy.”
