A team from the Office of the NRM National Chairman (ONC) is in Lira City ahead of the training and orientation meeting for the mobilisers from Lango sub region who will spearhead President Museveni’s 2021 reelection bid.
It will be facilitated by the ONC under the stewardship of the Personal Assistant to the party Chairman Milly Babirye Babalanda and her team who will take the Coordinators through what’s expected of them under their new roles as they mobilise the President’s support ahead of 2021.
The President will then Commission the group and empower them to represent him by percolating his manifesto message to the grassroot since he won’t be moving to the different parts of the country as has been the case due to the ministry of health guidelines due to Coronavirus.
Expected to attend are the mobilisers from Lira, Lira City, Amolatar, Apac, Kwania, Kole, Oyam, Dokolo, Alebtong, Otuke and Apac Municipality which make up the sub region.
