FDC Recalls Resolution Establishing People’s Government

Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) faction based in Najjanankumbi

In a significant development, the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) faction based in Najjanankumbi has formally rescinded the resolution that initially established the People’s Government. The move comes as a result of a deteriorating relationship between the FDC and the People’s Government.

Speaking to the press, Patrick Amuriat Oboi, the FDC faction leader, called upon the Electoral Commission to promptly release a clear roadmap for the Local Council elections, emphasizing the need for a level playing field for all political parties and candidates.

Amuriat Oboi explained, “The FDC National Executive Committee reached a consensus to recall the resolution that established the People’s Government. With immediate effect, the Forum for Democratic Change will no longer participate in any activities associated with the People’s Government.”

The decision to recall the resolution is rooted in internal conflicts and disputes within the FDC, leading to negative publicity for the party. Amuriat Oboi made it clear that any members who breach the party’s constitution or wish to discontinue their FDC membership are free to do so.

He further clarified that there are no factions within the FDC, dispelling claims of a Katonga or Najjanankumbi faction as entirely unfounded. According to Amuriat Oboi, “Whatever Erias Lukwago and Ssemujju Nganda are doing elsewhere is merely for self-contentment and satisfaction and mainly serves the purpose of duping the unsuspecting public, which we will resist as the FDC.”

Amuriat Oboi highlighted that individuals who are not registered FDC members have no influence on the party’s activities. He asserted, “All the political parties in this country are paper political countries. They have a lot to learn from us. We want to invite the NRM, NUP, and other political parties to come and learn from our example.”

As the FDC proceeds, Amuriat Oboi stressed the importance of identifying candidates with strong winning potential and fostering their development. He also extended an olive branch for dialogue with members who have defied the party’s authority, provided they are bona fide FDC members.

In closing, he urged the Electoral Commission to cease any delays in conducting the LC I and LC II women council elections, asserting that such delays are detrimental to Uganda’s democracy. Amuriat Oboi acknowledged the FDC’s reliance on grassroots supporters and their input in shaping the party’s future.
