She revealed that the prime objective of the training is to maintain public support, retain power and enhance quality of services in Bukedea district.
“Each of you may be the vision bearers in your respective jurisdictions based on the promises that you made to the electorate, the effectiveness of your leadership is dependent on your knowledge and skills,” she said.
The speaker urged the local leaders to be so close to the subjects and involve the citizenry in all decision making processes mainly on the issues concerning their areas adding that it is the only way to foster peace and unity.
“You ought always to be conscious to voice and champion the needs of the voiceless and vulnerable within Bukedea. Parliament is aware that while you possess this wide constitutional mandate, you are constrained by inadequate resource envelopes,” she said.
