Andrew Ojok Oulanyah, who is the NRM candidate in the Omoro by-election, has said that he expected NUP president Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu to support his candidature.
Ojok said that instead, the NUP principal who should be siding with young people, chose a candidate fit to be his “grandfather” to vie for the Omoro seat.
Ojok made these remarks while appearing on the NBS Television’s debate for the Omoro candidates dubbed Omoro Decides Debate last night.
“I expected Bobi Wine to support a young person like me, but he chose to go for my grandfather,” Ojok said
“I know myself, and God knows me I am capable. This is a calling for me. How people perceive me is their opinion,” he added.
On Monday Ojok Andrew Oulanyah received blessing from his grandfather Mr Nathan Okori in order so that he become a Member of parliament and serve the people of Omoro County like his father the late Jacob Oulanyah
President Museveni is expected in Omoro later on Tuesday, May 24, 2022 to drum up support for Ojok and campaigns in the area come to a close.
Other candidates in the race include Kizza Oscar (ANT), Odong Justine (FDC), Odonga Terence (IND), Onen Jimmy Walter (IND) and Tolit Simon Akecha (NUP).
According to the Electoral Commission schedule, elections in Omoro will be held on Thursday, May 26, 2022.
