“I’m tasking you the political leaders and security personnel at all levels not to focus on facilitation but fully monitor the NID exercise for it to be peaceful and successful,” Minister Nyakairima said.
He observed that leaders’ involvement will enable the mobilisation of the public and identifying the rightful people in the areas.
This was revealed on Wednesday during a one day training on National Identity Card Registration exercise that was attended by political, Religious leaders, CAOs, DISO, RISO, Cultural leaders and heads of Security from police and UPDF from districts of Bundibugyo, Ntoroko, Kasese, Kamwenge, Kyenjojo and Kabarole held at Lesuex Centre in Boma West division, Fort Portal municipality.
The Minister warned the participants against causing commotion; cooperation and teamwork are important.
“The economic growth of the country largely depends on IDs adding that they will help Ugandan businessmen travel abroad like in the East African countries and conduct their businesses without any interference and also improve on security.”
He tasked local leaders and security leaving at the boarder districts of Bundibugyo and Ntoroko bordering DRC to be extra vigilant and restrict the Congolese Refugees from registering as Ugandans.
“The country needs to get organised and hard on the refugees because it spends billions of money on non-citizens, especially the refugees in providing them social services and resettling them. So leaders at the borders with Democratic Republic of Congo be security conscious.”
