Former Kumi District Member of Parliament (MP), Patrick Amuriat Oboi has been successfully nominated to run for the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) for the term 2017-2021.
The former MP was flanked by party stalwarts including; the party National Mobilizer, Ingrid Turinawe, Vice President Central region, Joyce Nabbosa Ssebugwawo and former Bukholi Central MP, Philip Wafula Oguttu.
In his address to the media, Amuriat promised to take the party down to the grassroots as well as working tooth and nail to reclaim the party victory from the elections of 2016.
He also vowed to ensure that FDC takes over power.
“It is also my conviction that we will strengthen our different leagues. We are going to revitalise our structures and as a party we are going to aggressively campaign against bad leadership in the country,” Amuriat said.
Amuriat noted that he will use the campaign to set up a fight against land grabbing furthering a move that the party has already embarked on.
“We are also going to fight deliberately the proposed amendments for removal of age limit, this is going to be part of this campaign were we go to the people to promote non-violent means of changing government.”
Amuriat also observed that if there is need to use defiance as means to achieving the long-awaited change in the country, he will work towards such a campaign.
“I would like to call upon all Ugandans to stand with this campaign to make sure that we totally liberate our country; this is an opportunity for FDC to remove and put a vibrant new leadership that will take the party to greater heights,” he said.
“I pledge that by working with other forces within Uganda, we will strive to make Uganda a better place for everybody.”
