The NRM Electoral commission Chairperson, Dr. Tanga Odoi has said that Ugandans should not look at age as an issue in leadership but focus on the capability and ideological orientation of a person seeking a leadership position.
Appearing before the Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee of parliament yesterday, Odoi, who is also the chairperson of the ruling National Resistance Movement -NRM party Electoral Commission, Odoi said that the current President took power at a tender age, but due to correct ideological lines, he managed to reconfigure Uganda out of a failed state to one respected internationally.
He added that the NRM party under the now 73-year-old leader has become synonymous with peace, stability, democratic debates and fewer political mistakes. He then noted that it is not the issue of how aged or old but capability.
