The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Party President Patrick Oboi Auriat has appointed the Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago and Soroti Woman MP Anna Adeke Ebajju as party Deputy Presidents.
The two and other National Executive Committee (NEC) members were unveiled earlier today at party headquarters, Najjanankumbi.
Lukwago replaces the former mayor for Rubaga Division Joyce Nabbosa Ssebugwawo who was recently named the state minister for information and communication Technology (ICT) in the National Resistance Movement (NRM) government. Anna adeke replaces Kevin Taaka as the deputy president in charge of the Eastern region.
Upon swearing in Lukwago said: “I am quite confident that I will do my best. The principles of the party will be the guiding tool as I go about my duties. I promise to serve to the best of my abilities and capacity. I treasure the mission and vision of the party. I respect all the members who have put the party where it is.”
“I stand before you to express my gratitude to the members of FDC for the trust you have put in me and honoured me with this appointment. I unequivocally accept the nomination and appointment. I promise to make my humble contribution to elevate this party,” he said.
Patrick Amuriat said: “FDC has been through a lot of trials and tribulations. Many times, these trials have caused the naysayers to believe that FDC is about to wind up. We refuse to die as the FDC. Many people thought that FDC is a party of older adults only. Today we have the youngest ever Deputy President in the history of the party, Anna Adeke.”
Amuriat said the appointment of the two deputy presidents the Party is are now complete and ready to hit the ground running.
He revealed that the Party is in the advanced stages of developing a strategic plan for 2021 to 2026 that is going to guide the work of this political party.
