ANT will make West Nile an Industrial Hub − Mugisha Muntu

Tuesday 22nd December 2020, Presidential Candidate Mugisha Muntu and the team were joined by the veteran politician Hon. Kasiano Wadiri and campaigned in the areas of Koboko, Maracha, and Terego. Mugisha Muntu promised the people of West Nile that under the stewardship of the Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) government, the area will be transformed into an industrial hub to benefit them, Ugandans, and serve the neighboring countries of DRC and South Sudan. This will be achieved through infrastructural development, particularly an upgrade of Arua Airstrip to an International Airport, the opening of road networks, promotion of the tourism sector, the establishment of an electric power source along the Nile and ensuring favorable relations with the neighboring countries.  “Because of the geographical location, this region has the potential to become a manufacturing hub supplying both South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as the surrounding areas. We shall elevate the Arua airstrip to an international airport and develop the rest of the supporting infrastructure that is markedly lacking,” Mugisha Muntu said.

The presidential candidate further asked the people in the West Nile to retire Gen. Museveni peacefully on the 14th of January 2021. He said that this would mark the beginning of a new era for reorganizing the country and restoring its lost glory. He added that the ANT team is ready to spearhead this noble cause given that it is well organized and premised on values that the country needs most. “The power rests in Ugandans to register this landmark history, in the forthcoming polls,” he said.

Mugisha Muntu said that it is difficult for any country to achieve development with an ailing education system. Against this backdrop, he promised that the new ANT government shall invest in uplifting UPE and USE standards to the level where there will be no difference between a private and public school. He added that this will ignite the potential for socioeconomic development across all sectors of the economy, further noting that human capital development is one of the greatest dimensions for national economic growth and development.

Regarding health, Mugisha Muntu told the people in the West Nile that the government intends to invest in Primary Health Care (PHC), improve the working conditions of health workers through training and motivation, restock health facilities with drugs and equipment as well as introducing a National Health Insurance Scheme to eliminate barriers to accessing specialized treatment among Ugandans across the divide. With improved standards in health services, the country will ultimately achieve its target goals for economic growth in the short run.

He concluded the day by asking the people to vote for the ANT flag bearers, from the presidency, to parliament and local councils, and where ANT has no candidates, they should vote for other change-seeking candidates.
