Abdullahi has financial management and banking experience. For the last 2 years he worked as a senior economic policy adviser to the office of the Prime minister and federal Government of Somalia.

According to VOA Senior Journalist Harun Maruf, The Somali cabinet has reportedly approved the appointment of Abdirahman Mohamed Abdullahi as the next central bank governor. Abdullahi is said to have been a key player in the ongoing financial reforms and the 30% internal revenue increase reported by the government last year.
On january 15, Somali MPs approved an amendment allowing foreign nationals to serve as central bank governor. Media reports named Briton Nigel Roberts as possible choice but I hear some candidates only committed to spending 50% of their time in Mogadishu which forced Government to go local.
