We need patriotism and good leadership to grow the Ugandan economy – President Museveni

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has revealed what is needed to grow the different sectors of the Ugandan economy and its not such a great puzzle to solve but rather patriotism and good leadership.

Museveni through his Twitter page summed up his message delivered at the Kololo Independence grounds during this year’s International Labor Day.

According to Museveni the themes were centered on how to mitigate the effects of COVID-19 and how to implement the Parish Development Model.

The president hailed all workers both dead and alive who have immensely contributed to the growth of the country’s economy right from when the NRM took over until now.

Museveni who has been trying to promote the Parish Development Model said that he’s sure that it will unblock the untapped economic potential amongst majority Ugandans who practice subsistence economics.

Also during this ceremony, Museveni awarded about 50 people he described as friends who have contributed to the development of the country. In those awarded was the leadership of the NSSF.

The president applauded the way NSSF has immensely contributed to the growth of its assets in the last 12 years.

Museveni also further said that what the NSSF has been able to achieve can be achieved by other sectors since government has continued to invest in them. He further put emphasis on the Parish Development Model which he said will be invested in heavily to see that it takes off.

He concluded by saying that in case patriotism and good leadership like that one of NSSF is exhibited by the different sectors of the economy, then tremendous growth will be achieved soon.
