Napak District, 6th February 2024– The National Resistance Movement (NRM) Secretary General, Rt Hon Richard Todwong, delivered a powerful message of shared responsibility and personal excellence during the belated Liberation Day celebrations in Napak District.
Addressing the gathering, Mr. Todwong urged the people of the Karamoja sub-region to unite in building a peaceful and prosperous society. He emphasized the need for both leaders and citizens to actively contribute to the collective well-being of the community.
“The work of the government is to bring peace, security, and infrastructure; the rest is for your household. You are the President of your home, and it must be a centre of excellence. Your children must not be married before the right age,” Mr. Todwong declared, underlining the pivotal role individuals play in creating flourishing households.
The Secretary General highlighted the government’s commitment to providing essential elements like peace, security, and infrastructure, while urging citizens to take charge of their own destinies. He emphasized the transformative power of individual households, encouraging residents to turn them into centers of excellence.
The belated Liberation Day celebrations served as a platform for the community to come together and reflect on the progress made, not only in terms of liberation but also in the ongoing efforts to build a region characterized by peace and prosperity.
Mr. Todwong’s address resonated with the audience, reinforcing the notion that true progress requires a joint effort between the government and its citizens. The call for households to become centers of excellence echoes the importance of personal responsibility in shaping a brighter future for the Karamoja sub-region.
As the people of Napak District commemorated Liberation Day, the message from the NRM Secretary General echoed a vision of unity, shared responsibility, and individual commitment towards creating a society marked by peace, development, and excellence.
