NRM Conference in Dokolo District: Backing Janet Adongo for MP Seat.

The ruling NRM district conference in Dokolo district has reaffirmed its support for party flag bearer, Janet Adongo Rose Alau, in the ongoing district Woman Member of Parliament race to succeed the late Cecilia Ogwal.

Adongo previously represented the NRM during the 2021 general elections.

Delegates gathered on 02nd of March 2024 at Dokolo Technical School in Dokolo Town council for the event. During the gathering, the NRM deputy Secretary General, Rt. Hon. Namayanja Rose Nsereko, serving as the chief guest, praised the Dokolo party members for their willingness to unite and rally behind the flag bearer.

“Many of you have recognized that NRM transcends individuals, which is why some who intended to run as independents chose to support Rose Adongo,” Namayanja remarked.

She also urged party members still considering contesting to throw their weight behind the NRM candidate for the remaining two years before the 2026 general elections.

“The NRM government is already in place with a focus on securing the future. If elected, Janet Adongo will collaborate closely with Dokolo constituency MPs and the government to deliver services to the grassroots,” Namayanja emphasized.

Rt. Hon. Rose Namayanja further urged voters to endorse an aspirant from the ruling party who will accelerate service delivery and the implementation of government programs like the PDM.

“Every parish in the country is receiving 100 million for PDM. With the NRM Chairman in leadership, the program will be well supervised while working with other party leaders,” Namayanja assured.

The Director of Mobilisation, Hon. Rosemary Seninde, expressed gratitude to those who initially aspired to vie for the Dokolo seat but later withdrew to foster political unity within the NRM family.

“Thank you for demonstrating love for Uganda and supporting a single candidate. Withdrawing does not signify weakness but rather harmony and teamwork,” Seninde acknowledged, saluting the three aspirants who stepped aside in favor of Janet Adongo.

Mrs. Seninde assured delegate members that NRM remains steadfast in fulfilling the aspirations of the people. “Ugandans seek service delivery, which is why we have introduced numerous poverty alleviation programs like the Parish Development Model and Emyooga to uplift the livelihoods of those in the subsistence economy.”

She urged Mrs. Adongo, if elected, to prioritize the welfare of Dokolo residents. “Ensure that your constituents are served with dedication and commitment.”

The NRM flag bearer, Janet Adongo Rose Alau, pledged not to disappoint the locals and the party if elected. “I promise to work tirelessly for the development of Dokolo,” she affirmed.

Nomination of candidates by the Independent Electoral Commission is scheduled for the 10th and 11th of March, with campaigns set to commence on the 13th until the 19th of March 2024.
