The NRM Secretary General Rt Hon Justine Kasule Lumumba has this afternoon interfaced with all University NRM Chapter Chairpersons and their patrons at the party head offices in Kampala to forge away towards the forthcoming 2020 guild elections across all universities in the country.


Rt Hon Lumumba was accompanied by the Deputy Secretary-General Hon Richard Todwong and the National Treasurer Hon Namayanja Rose Nsereko.


The Secretary-General urged the leaders to let go of all distractions in their political lives and focus on the objectives of being leaders. Further more asked them as leaders to always work to deliver victory to their team.


She also expounded on the benefits of being united, rallying them to always set aside their differences and work for the common good.


She discouraged the guild presidents of the various universities from having long term enemies but thus remain united and work with their patrons for better guidelines. "When you have differences amongst yourselves, sit and discuss them as a body, you must work together and co-exist," she encouraged.


The Deputy Secretary-General Hon Richard Todwong called on the students to embrace institutional organisation and to take advantage of their positions by building their political careers.

"In whichever field you are right now, you must understand that the NRM is your pillar. Think of this institution (University Chapter) more proactively," he said.


"Thank you for rendering yourselves relevant in the leadership sphere. I am a product of student leadership and I can assure you that there is no better grooming grounds than student and youth politics," the National Treasurer, Hon Namayanja Rose Nsereko encouraged.


She then commended the students for taking up leadership positions explaining that this was a great foundation for their careers in politics.


She also advised them to be focused and resilient in their endeavours and to build relations with other leaders.
