Press Statement: Professor Gilbert Bukenya returns Nomination Forms (04.09.2015)
I came here sometime ago and picked TDA Nomination papers for aspirants to the position of TDA presidential flag bearer.
I also picked forms for members of Parliaments that believe in our vision; today we bring back our completed nomination forms. We believe in unity and TDA is the answer. That is why we are here to demonstrate our full support to TDA.
All the problems of Uganda will not be solved at once, even democracy will grow and no country in the world are at the same level of democracy. we therefor strongly believe that when we are in the next government we shall bring about many meaningful changes.
1. Electoral Reforms
2. Constitutional amendments
3. Reducing public expenditure (number of MPs, number of districts and presidential advisors etc…)
4. Increase productive expenditure
5. Fight corruption.
The current government will never tackle these changes if they are still in power, this they have demonstrated a number of times.
Therefore i am not a believer in “no reforms, no participation in elections” this is giving a silver plate to the current dictatorship to retain power. I will participate in the coming general elections to defeat this regime. Thereafter embark on genuine reforms. We shall then prove ourselves to be different and committed to our country THE TIME FOR CHANGE IS NOW.
Do not take us for granted we mean what we say. I thank all those Ugandans who are deeply supporting our cause. I have so far gathered the required electoral Commission signature for my presidential nomination bid in 82 districts of Uganda in less than 2 weeks. but i will stand with the TDA procedures for concluding on a single presidential flag bearer and i will support whoever is concluded on.
TDA must not delay and if it delays it will be its fault.
Tackling poverty is my priority number one. Poverty for today, tomorrow and future generations. We have the plan that will be wholly and fully implementable. The poor have been so abused and so exploited beyond reason by the government of today.
They are handed money in bags instead of teaching them to look for their own money. These sharks don’t want to teach the poor “to fish”but want to give them fish making them beggars. This must change.
Bukenya will teach you how to fish and eat fish whenever you want.
For God and My Country
Prof. Gilbert Bukenya
Presidential Aspirant 2016.
