President Museveni today addressed two rallies in Arua as to canvass support for Isaac Etuka, the NRM flag-bearer, in the Upper Madi parliamentary by-election.
During his address, President Museveni promised the people of Arua that because of the vast nature of Arua District, the government will give it three units of the recently procured road construction equipment.
President Museveni urgued the People of Upper Madi to vote for the NRM because It’s the party that has brought peace and development to Uganda.
“I noticed majority of the crowds that greeted me are youthful people. If you ask your parents, they will tell you they were once refugees”, Museveni said.
He further said that today, Ugandans are no longer refugees instead we host refugees because Uganda is peaceful.
He also promised Idraa Villageto get electricity.
“Arua’s problem was that the source of electricity was far and the demand was low. But we have now constructed a power station at Nyagak which will address this problem.
I also urge the people of Arua to embrace wealth creation. It helps you improve at individual level.
He urged Upper Madi voters to support Mr Etuka and promised to return here for his victory party once he wins.
