The Forum for Democratic Change-FDC Extra Ordinary Delegates Conference sitting in Kampala has suspended the party President Eng Patrick Oboi Amuriat and appointed the City Lord Mayor and party Vice President in charge of Buganda Erias Lukwago as the Interim President.
The conference also suspended the party Secretary General Nathan Nandala Mafabi and the Treasurer Geoffrey Ekanya.
FDC party Spokesperson Ibrahim Semujju Nganda communicated the resolution of the delegate’s conference from the ‘People’s Government’ offices at Katonga in Kampala.
He says Lukwago now takes over as the Party President, Harold Kaija as the Secretary-General and Francis Mwijukye as the Treasurer.
These have been deputies to the suspended officials. The interim officials will serve for six months as the party works out a solution to their challenges. Semujju Nganda explains.
Lukwago says that high on his agenda as he assumes office is to fight the Delegates Conference that was called by the party’s Electoral Commission.
Lukwago said that the conference which is scheduled for October 6, 2023, at the party offices in Najjanankumbi, is illegal and urged his newly appointed colleagues to be steadfast in pursuit of the FDC Agenda.
