We Cannot Work with NUP, We Don’t Know What they Stand For – FDC’s Amuriat

The president of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC), Patrick Amuriat Oboi, has ruled out any possibility of working with the National Unity Platform (NUP) to cause regime change in Uganda, citing the NUP’s lack of a clear agenda as a major hindrance to the two parties’ cooperation.

Amuriat who was speaking during a talk show on a local TV station on Monday, July 8, noted that NUP has an unclear agenda that seems not to be focused on causing regime change in Uganda or transforming the country into a better one and that they as FDC cannot risk their integrity by forming a coalition with such a party.

“We need to know what they (NUP) stand for up to now,” Amuriat stated, considering the current situation in NUP, where the party leaders have abandoned the struggle for regime change and turned guns on themselves.

However, Amuriat said that FDC is not competing with NUP and that they only seek to take power in this country and thus cannot waste time minding another party’s business.

“None of them has the ball; NUP doesn’t, UPC doesn’t, DP doesn’t, and our friends in Katonga don’t. Our focus is on who has the ball, and that’s NRM. We shall tackle those who have the ball, not those seeking the ball,” he said.

Amuriat’s remarks leave no space for the United Forces of Change, an amalgamation of all opposition political parties that was being concocted by former FDC president Kizza Besigye, to work as a vehicle for causing regime change.
