President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has rejected a proposal by the NRM youths to form independent campaign structures ahead of the 2021 elections.
President Museveni was meeting over 300 NRM youth leaders from West Nile in Muni University campus yesterday.
Godfrey Abima, chairperson NRM Youth League West Nile while delivering the memo during the meeting said the youth are determined to put NRM in the lead with at least a 99 percent win.
However, Hajat Nahad Madina, the Director for Finance and Administration at the NRM Secretariat said it’s important to boost efforts of the youth to undertake grass root campaigns as long as they remain committed and loyal to the party, but warned the youth against deviating from the President’s directive.
In his address to the youths of West Nile, President Museveni rejected the idea of creating an independent youth mobilization team saying it will disorganize the already established campaign and mobilization structures.
Museveni said the youth leaders should work with other groups like elders instead of campaigning independently for the party.
