Teso Opposition And NRM MPs Agree On Parish Development Model

Opposition and the ruling NRM party MPs in Teso have spoken the same language of embracing the newly-introduced Parish Development Model program.

The data collection exercise by Uganda Bureau of Statistics(UBOS) as well as the sensitization drive were recently launched. This happened at the Katakwi district headquarters for the Parish Development Model.

During the ceremony, Minister Musa Ecweru and Hellen Adoa as well as FDC’s Soroti Woman MP Anna Adeke read from the same page.

The Vice President’s representative, Minister Ecweru said that compared to other programs, the PDM has been well-thought-out by government. He revealed that this program will definitely help improve household incomes.

“I commit myself and on behalf of my colleagues from this sub-region to make Teso, a model region in the success of the Parish Development Model. This is so that leaders from other parts of the country that may find problems in the implementation of this program, may find it prudent to come to Teso and find out how we made it because we are more prepared than other parts of the country,” Ecweru said.

Ecweru further revealed that to ensure the program’s success, government has the involvement of all leaders and government ministries.

The State Minister for Agriculture in charge of Fisheries, Hellen Adoa applauded UBOS. This was for the component of data collection before implementation of the Parish Development Model.

However, she said they should involve religious leaders in the data collection process so as to sensitize their followers.

The Soroti Woman MP also, FDC‘s Anna Adeke said she is optimistic about the success of the program. Unlike earlier government poverty eradication programs.

Speaking at the same function, Charles Oleny Ojok, the Deputy Executive Director for the National Planning Authority but also a UBOS board member urged the data collectors to do the work diligently to ensure correct data is got.

He said collection of accurate data will be key in the implementation and success of the program. He also urged parish chiefs to take a leading role in the data collecting exercise. This is one of the ways of ensuring the program is a success.
