Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Chairman Waswa Birigwa has on Wednesday rallied the people of Teso region in coming presidential elections to back their own Eng. Patrick Amuriat Oboi.
Addressing supporters at Abarilela sub county headquarters in Amuria District today, Wasswa Birigwa who is the head of the Party’s Presidential campaign team said it is incumbent upon all Teso locals to vote their own well knowing that this block has never featured in Uganda’s Presidents.
“So Teso, this is the only time you have to ever elect a President for your children, grandchildren and children’s children; this is the only President you will ever remember, “he stated.
He explained that this was the reason he opted out of the FDC Presidential Flag bearer race and that his efforts would be in vain if the people of Teso refused to rally behind the former Kumi County Legislator.
Biriggwa also used the rally to attack President Yoweri Museveni whom he said does not have the people of this region at heart.
“I know him better than most of you. I worked with him for 12 years,” said.
