For the past few days there has been speculation that was circulating on social media stating that Ao Christian Tadele, Spokesperson of the National Movement for Amhara (NAMA) used to be a member of the Amhara Democratic Party (ADP) back when the party was known as National Amhara Democratic Movement. Mereja TV contacted Ato Christian to confirm the news. In the exclusive interview, Ato Christian admitted that he was a member of ADP from 1992 to 2002. The National Movement of Amhara (NAMA) is a pro-Amhara ethnic nationalist movement that was founded in 2018 with a goal to represent the people of the Amhara ethnic group. The party has been accusing ADP of being affiliated with The Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) and not respecting the wishes of the Amhara people by siding with TPLF.
