National Resistance Movement-NRM party aspirants eyeing the Omoro County MP seat have been summoned by President Museveni.
So far eleven people have expressed interest to replace the late Jacob Oulanyah, among four who subscribe to the NRM party.
They include the Omoro LCV Chairperson Douglas Peter Okello alias Okao, Omoro District Speaker Richard Bongowat Luganya, Oulanyah`s son Andrew Ojok, and Oulanyah`s former campaign manager Ben Acellam.
Denis Kidega, the Omoro District NRM party chairperson says that the aspirants were summoned for planning purposes and how to secure victory during the elections.
Kidega who is in Kampala with the four aspirants added that the meeting scheduled for today seeks to create harmony and build consensus for a preferred candidate.
Okello, who is already in Kampala noted that he is willing to abide by the party`s decision citing that it is the supreme body to determine his fate.
Richard Bongowat Laganya, another aspirant who is already in Kampala confirmed being part of the meeting adding that they will also focus on other issues affecting Omoro County.
The family of Jacob Oulanyah and other NRM party leaders had fronted Oulanyah`s son Andrew Ojok to vie for the position, a decision that faced resistance from other party members.
Last week, the Electoral Commission set May 26, 2022, as the date for the Omoro County by-elections.
