The ruling NRM party National Chairman, President, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has spoken out on the recommendations by different Party organs encouraging him to continue steering the leadership of NRM and the government in 2021 and beyond, thanking them for their support.
He made the remarks on Monday afternoon while addressing the NRM Parliamentary Caucus.
“I thank my Colleagues in CEC and the NRM Parliamentary Caucus for forwarding my name to continue adding more steps on our mission-oriented journey,” Museveni said.
He said together with the Party membership coupled with the assured economic recovery, NRM was destined to deliver the country to a higher levels.
Last week, NRM MPs, endorsed the party’s central executive committee (CEC) resolution to have President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni as their sole candidate in the 2021 polls.
The NRM top decision making organ, the CEC, last month made the resolution at its retreat at Chobe Safari Lodge, Nwoya district. The position by the NRM MPs was taken after a presentation by the party secretary general Justine Kasule Lumumba entitled “Towards 2021: Milestones & Strategies for the NRM Party”.
Speaking with emphasis on a mission-oriented leadership, the President said he was confident that there are very many good steps already implemented in a very positive direction.
“Am therefore very pleased with your confidence in me and since am still very able and I happen to be among the most conversant with this journey, I happily agree to serve,” he said fetching a loud cheer from the Legislators who nominated him unanimously on Sunday.
He added, “I am very convinced that together we can make NRM invulnerable, not vulnerable to any attack when we budget well, deal with the issues of the youth and job creation among others”.
