Vote for A Leader Who Will Cause Transformation-Gen. Mugisha Muntu
The Alliance for National Transformation presidential candidate, Gen. Mugisha Muntu has asked the people of Busoga to choose a leader who will revive the glory of the country by causing transformation.
Muntu made the remarks while campaigning in Iganga Municipality.
He promised to allocate a bigger portion of the National Budget towards improving sugar cane growing in Busoga sub-region.
“We shall establish an agricultural bank. Over 70% of our population is in agriculture, but they cannot grow and commercialise if they borrow from commercial banks at their rates. Farmers need financing at lower rates, and also with longer repayment periods,”he said.
Muntu also promised to increase the budget allocation for agriculture from the current 3.8% to 10%.
