As the country gears for the February 18 General elections, stomach http://demcsb.com/wp-includes/default-filters.php President Museveni is leaving no stone unturned in combing Northern and Eastern regions for votes.

Museveni on Sunday rushed to Arua and Lira to reassure voters on his commitment to transforming their livelihoods.

He also sought to heal wounds following bitter internal NRM wrangles that had left the party at risk of a defeat by the opposition. “Politics is like football. If your own teammate makes a foul, remedy you don’t alert the referee, http://compuaprende.com/components/com_community/templates/jomsocial/layouts/profile.deleteprofile.php ” said Museveni at his first rally at Arua Municipal Grounds.

“I was here about two months ago but returned to remind you of a few things. The NRM has promoted unity among Ugandans and because of this we have got strength, which has given us peace and enabled development,” he added.

“We have worked on roads, electricity, hospitals, education among others. Now we are going to embark on wealth creation.”

On fighting poverty, Museveni said NRM plans to prioritize 5 key wealth-creation funds crafted to help citizens.

Museveni reassured Arua on his commitment to transforming their livelihoods.

The Agriculture Fund or NAADS will be increased from Shs203 billion to Shs1,000 billion. The Youth Fund will be boosted from Shs 54 billion to Shs234 billion.

The Microfinance Fund will be upped from Shs 44 billion to Shs 180 billion, the Innovation Fund will be boosted from Shs170 billion to Shs 500 billion and the Women Fund will get Shs 234 billion. The NRM candidate said benefiting from these funds will not require security. On ex-service men, said Museveni, “we are going to pay their pension and also compensate those affected by previous wars.”

At recent rallies Dr Kizza Besigye and Amama Mbabazi promised to compensate victims of the LRA war. Museveni further promised to construct the Koboko- Moyo, and the Arua-Terego-Moyo roads.

“With prioritization we shall achieve all this. What is important is for Uganda to have a peaceful environment for all this to happen,” he added. On education and health services, Museveni said he expected the district chairpersons and district education officers to supervise these facilities because the government has injected a lot of funds in these sectors.

“For example why should private schools perform better than government schools yet teachers in the latter are paid better? It is a question of supervision and I am instructing DEOs to supervise government schools to ensure quality service,” he added. Museveni will today hold rallies in Jinja.
