President Museveni was in Arua town today for the wealth creation campaign. He began the day by commissioning the following rehabilitated roads; Enyau, Idi Amin, Kamure Park Round-about and Old Jago roads.
Later, he addressed wanainchi who had gathered at Boma Grounds on the outskirts of the municipality, where he stressed the need for households to get involved in the money economy through the various available channels.
He is glad that several speakers appreciate the restoration of peace to West Nile region. The public must now jealously guard this peace and reject wrong elements who sow seeds of division and discord.
Arua town has benefited greatly from the peace dividend. It has expanded, is very robust and there are new developments like the new roads. The government will construct more roads like Atiak-Adjumani-Koboko, the Arua-Terego-Moyo one and the Nebbi-Goli road,’he said.
Museveni advises people in Arua how to make money
These developments are for us all but at an individual level, one must think about their income. You must work towards improving your household income. You must take advantage of programmes like OWC, women and youth funds to support your enterprises,’said Museveni.
For those in agriculture, it must be done calculatively. I have tasked your leaders to guide you on the four-acre model and also support you get inputs from the OWC programme. We shall start a fish farming project for the youth along the Nile.
On the industrialization front, we plan to set up parks in this region. Government is already constructing power lines to evacuate electricity from Karuma Dam. When Karuma gets online, industrialization will be easy.
Therefore all the ingredients for your prosperity are in place, you only need to find your niche and take advantage of government programmes. Shun politicians who lie that the government is doing nothing about people’s welfare. I thank you for coming to listen to me,’he added.
