Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed (PhD) has made a series of high-brass appointments, including Mamo Mihretu as the Governor of the National Bank of Ethiopia (NBE), replacing Yinager Dessie (PhD).

He studied leadership and economic development at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University in the United States. He attained his post-graduate studies in law at the Universities of Pretoria and Amsterdam.

Taye Atskeselassie, ambassador to the UN until a few weeks ago, has been appointed as the foreign policy advisor, and Daniel Kibret for social affairs.

The Prime Minister has also put forward ministerial nominees to Parliament, placing Habtamu Tegegn as the minister of Mines, Girma Amente (PhD) as minister of Agriculture, and Alemu Semie (PhD) as minister of Transport & Logistics. They replaced Takele Uma, Dagmawit Moges, and Umar Hussien, respectively.
