University students have been advised to shun the idea of going abroad to look for jobs after graduation due to ‘no jobs’.
They have instead been told to involve themselves in the government programs which aim at transforming the country.
‘’Uganda needs you, young people, to contribute to the development of your country rather than going abroad,’’ Brig. Gen. Patrick Mwesigye from the office of the president said.
On Thursday, Brig. Gen. Mwesigye addressed university student leaders from seven different institutions. This happened during a weekly National Resistance Movement (NRM) ideological clinic.
The aim of this is to reshape the minds of the people. And instill a deeper understanding of patriotism among the youth.
The NRM clinics takes place every Thursday at the NRM Secretariat in Kyadondo and it attracted students from different institutions.
These included Makerere, Kyambogo, Ndejje, Islamic University of Uganda, Team, and Nkumba among others that graced the clinic.
According to Mwesigye, change of the mindset plays an important role in developing the person. He, therefore, said for the country to attain upper-middle-income status, it should first change the mindset of its people.
‘’The reason why some people are developmental while others are staggering into poverty is because of a poor mindset’’ Gen. Mwesigye said.
