NUP’S Bobi Wine and FDC’S Amuriant Dodge EC Meeting
The National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine and Forum for Democratic Change presidential candidate Patrick Oboi Amuriat have snubbed their scheduled meeting with the Electoral Commission (EC)
EC summoned Patrick Amuriant and Robert Kyagulanyi over violation of COVID-19 guidelines over the weekend.
According to the letter written by EC, the two opposition candidates were supposed to meet in person with EC but it seems impossible.
Speaking to Nettech Media, Joel Ssenyonyi, the NUP spokesperson, said that their presidential candidate, Kyagulanyi, is far away in the northern region and cannot make it to the said meeting.
“Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi will not make it to EC today. He is in Karamoja. Coming back to Kampala will eat a lot of time, yet we have lost time,” Ssenyonyi said.
According to the FDC verified social media accounts, Amuriat is also in the north, scheduled to meet his supporters in Karenga, Kaabong and Abim with no signs of answering the EC summon.
