President Museveni yesterday, 16th October, 2016, officiated the passing-out of 289 youth leaders following a two-month leadership course at the NALI, Kyankwanzi.
According to Museveni, these new graduates did not have sufficient leadership skills, and they had to first undergo a serious leadership course to become ambassadors of the party.
“I directed that this course happens after noticing a leadership skills gap among our youth. I want these graduates to become our ambassadors.” Museveni said.
As one way of attaining the ‘middle income status’ Museveni wants these youths to champion agriculture while taking use of operation wealth creation programme.
“These youth should take interest in commercial agriculture and take advantage of the Operation Wealth Creation programme. He said.
“This will help in our push for a middle income status. We need to increase our exports as we reduce imports. Agriculture is critical in this.” Museveni concluded.
