A Statement by His Imperial Highness Prince Ermias Sahle-Selassie Haile-Selassie, President of the Crown Council

It is with great sadness that we have learnt of the passing of our former President, Girma Wolde-Giorgis. We extend our deepest sympathy to his family and to the Ethiopian people he served for many years.

The Almighty had blessed President Girma with a long life. He served his people with wisdom, tenacity, and bold leadership. His love for his people and his Ethiopia was exemplified by his spirit of volunteerism, service, and compassion.

His wise counsel and tireless efforts will be missed. He will remain as an exemplary statesman for coming generations.

May the Almighty grant solace to his family and grant his soul eternal peace.

HIH Prince Ermias Sahle Selassie Haile Selassie, for the Crown Council of Ethiopia.
