President Museveni on Wednesday officiated at an NRM district chairpersons dinner at Hotel African under the theme “Igniting the centrality of District chairpersons in the performance and growth of NRM to help Uganda achieve the middle income status”.
In his remarks, the President congratulated them on being elected NRM chairpersons.
President Museveni informed the chairmen that most of the problems that the country is facing are due to lack of ideological training.
“Ideology is like a compass. The NRM has been able to navigate for many years because of its correct ideological training, NRM is always providing correct answers because of ideological exposure”.
“In the bible God asked Solomon what he wanted and he answered give me wisdom which was going to be his compass as a king to rule. This is similar to ideology,” said President Museveni.
He also informed the gathering that most of these countries like China and Russia it is the ideology and strategy that has made them powerful.
He also asked the district chairmen to emphasize and spread the Idea of Wealth Creation.
As leaders they should not only report on what government has done, for example roads, hospitals and Schools, but also sensitize people about wealth creation.
Saying, “as leaders be champions in your districts so that you earn respect from the Wanainchi.”
