The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) president, Patrick Amuriat Oboi, has been declared the party Presidential flag bearer for the 2021 general election.
The other contender for the seat who is also the party chairperson, Wasswa Biriggwa pulled out of the race before elections on Thursday, saying he is concentrating on reconciliation within and with other political parties.
“I am allowing Patrick Amuriat Oboi to carry on this. I have found him strong and he is going to give Mr Museveni a run for his money,” Mr Biriggwa said.
Mr Amuriat announced Biriggwa as the running mate saying he (Biriggwa) is capable of being the deputy president of Uganda.
“And therefore when I become the president next year, he will be my deputy president and this is serious. It’s not a joke,” Amuriat said.
“When Ambassador joined FDC, I didn’t believe in him. Even when he contested for the position of chairman, I didn’t trust him because I thought he would lead FDC to Museveni. I even decampaigned him, but I was completely wrong. I have come to know him as an honest and reliable man who is the real leader of the party,” Amuriat added
