On education, the Presiddnt stated, "By 1961 there was no single secondary school in the whole Northern and Eastern Regions. But Nebbi District alone now has 25 Secondary Schools, 10 of which are government". The district also has 201 Primary schools with an enrolment of 125.000 pupils. 163 of these are government founded & 38 privately owned.
"We are here to elect someone to replace our comrade (William Alenyo) who died. He worked with us to push Nebbi forward. Fill his place with someone who can carry on the same things" the NRM National Party Chairman told voters before he officially introduced the youthful Emmanuel Urombi, 31 to an excited crowd .
The President also spoke against the misuse of the power of the vote. "Some people think of minting money from a candidate but how can shs 1000 for 5 years help you? This is misuse of your vote. Elect people who will solve the problems of the society" he advised.
