Joseph Byaruhanga of Nyamarebe Sub County says his decision to back Prof. Baryamureba who is not a member of his party NRM, stems from his successes in promoting technical education in the region.

A section of voters in Ibanda district have endorsed Prof. Venansius Baryamureba as their presidential aspirant in the 2016 elections.
 
The residents turned up in big numbers to meet Prof. Barayamureba at Ibanda integrated play ground in Ibanda district on Wednesday as he held his fist consultative meeting in the region.

The former Makerere University Chancellor announced in May that he would contest for the presidency as an independent candidate.
 
Led by Duesdedit Ashabaruhanga from Ibanda town, the voters argued that with the level of education and experience in managing one of the biggest universities in the country, Prof. Baryamureba is the right presidential candidate to change Uganda's education sector.
 
Ashabaruhanga argues that the current education system does not favour poor Ugandans to excel on the competitive world adding that they have high hopes in Baryamureba as the best person to steer this to high heights.
 
Joseph Byaruhanga of Nyamarebe Sub County, a member of the NRM party, says his decision to back Baryamureba who is not a member of his party stems from his successes in promoting technical education in the region.
 
Byaruhanga argues that Baryamureba when elected president, will be able to put emphasis on capitation grants in government schools in order to improve standard of education.
 
Prof. Baryamureba accepted the endorsement and promised to devote every effort to lead the "Progressive Ugandans" to victory in the 2016 elections.

He assured the people from his home town Ibanda that in his first year of presidency, he will create millions of job opportunities and focus on vocational studies for all school going children.
           
Baryamureba noted that President Museveni has done many things to gear the development of Ugandan but failed to do others like in the field of health, unemployment and fighting corruption.
