Fellow Citizens, family, friends and members of the Great Forum for Democratic Change Party,
Greetings. I have this day of 17th August, 2020 taken a conscious decision to offer myself as candidate for President of Uganda. For this to happen I must subject myself to the internal selection process of my party, the Forum for Democratic Change, FDC.
Accordingly I will be picking and completing the FDC forms for Expression of Interest tomorrow Wednesday 19th August, 2020 at 10:30 am and returning Nomination forms on 26th August, 2020 at 11 am. I count on you all to offer prayers and all forms of support as I make this journey to become the highest ranking servant of this country.
Thank you all
God bless you.
One Uganda One People
