The Problem in Uganda Now Not Jobs But Lack Of Vision- President Museveni

Labour Day celebrations - 2024 - Fortportal City

By Agency

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has revealed that the current problem in Uganda is not jobs but rather attitude and lack of vision among citizens who don’t listen to the National Resistance Movement (NRM)’s message of wealth creation.

“Don’t tell me about the lack of jobs, talk about lack of vision. The jobs are there,” he said.

The President made the remarks on Wednesday during the International Labour Day celebrations held at Mukabura Grounds, Fort Portal City.

The International Labour Day, also known as May Day, is commemorated annually on May 1st to recognise the contributions and achievements of workers worldwide and promote workers’ rights and opportunities.

This year’s celebrations ran under the theme: “Improving Access to Labour Justice, A Prerequisite for Increased Productivity”.

According to the President, since 1996, he has been preaching about wealth creation especially through commercial agriculture with the right enterprise selection and if Ugandans religiously followed the message, the challenge of jobs would not be an issue.

On the other hand, the President advised the labour union leaders that if they are to advocate for jobs, they should first ensure that they create an avenue for wealth creation.
