Forum for Democratic Change –FDC Candidates in Gulu have launched a new campaign dubbed ‘defaced posters’.

The new campaign comes after hundreds of the campaign posters of FDC candidates were allegedly defaced by National Resistance Movement-NRM party supporters ahead of candidate, Yoweri Museveni’s visit to Gulu district on November 16th, 2020.  

Patrick Lumumba Oola, the Gulu City FDC Chairperson, says under the ‘defaced posters’ campaign, FDC candidates will be moving to voters with torn and defaced posters. 

//Cue in: “We are going…  

Cue out …wait to start January.” //

Oola, who is also vying for the Bardege –Layibi Division Mayor’s seat, says the aim and objective of the campaign is to show “voters what he termed as the wicked and demonic nature of NRM members who showed their acts of cowardice by defacing the campaign posters of opposition candidates”.

//Cue: “And that is…  

Cue out …take them anywhere.” //


Andrew Ogweta Otto, the Gulu City FDC Spokesperson, who is running for the Gulu East Division –North councilor’s seat says they officially launched the campaign on Tuesday morning in various parts of the division.

He says they want to send a message to voters that NRM members defaced their posters that were produced with support from well-wishers to attract sympathy from the voters.

Ogweta says they are not inciting their supporters to retaliated by defacing posters of NRM candidates because FDC is a peaceful party.

James Ocen, the Gulu District NRM Chairperson dismissed the allegations that NRM supporters defaced the posters of their rivals as baseless and may not affect the results of the 2021 elections since the electorates know that NRM members are well disciplined.

He advised opposition parties to exercise maturity, saying that even NRM candidates are complaining about their defaced campaign posters.
