Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong has revealed his readiness to serve county residents in any capacity after his tenure as the Governor ends after 2022 general elections.
In what appears his desire to vie for the Member of Parliament seat, the Governor said he will go by the will of the people since he is still energetic to discharge his duties.
Speaking at Kotur in Teso South Sub County on Saturday, where he presided over an impromptu harambee for Mashujaa Women Group.
The Governor said his ambition to become either a Cabinet Secretary, Deputy President or President is still on course to warrant him retire to his Okiludu residence after handing over instruments of power.
Responding to requests by the women for him to stand for the Teso South MP seat, H.E Ojaamong said the position will be easy task for him having served in similar capacity before.
“I want to join the league of top leaders in Nairobi to push for elevation of county residents to positions including Managing Directors, ambassadors and many others, thus my desire to represent my people at the national level,” he said.
The County Chief thanked the people of Teso South for their 100 per cent support during his tenure as MP and now the Governor, promising to assist them where possible.
However, the Governor said he is not interfering with the work plan of the area MP Hon Geoffrey Omuse, noting that time to engage in politics is still far to warrant panic.
The Governor thanked President Uhuru Kenyatta for appointing Dr Nicodemus Anyang as the Teachers Service Commission Commissioner, noting that the gesture is well appreciated.
Amukura East MCA, Hon Moses Echopat said he will not relent in pushing for the Governor’s agenda in his ward despite resistance from some leaders, adding that H.E Ojaamong has initiated many projects.
Busia Woman Representative, Florence Mutua called for unity in the county, noting that despite being in ODM she will not only serve the party members but all county residents if she takes over as the Governor.
She urged county residents to support former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga to succeed Uhuru Kenyatta as the fifth President of Kenya, acknowledging that the wind is changing in Raila’s favour.
Chief Officer in charge of ICT and Communication, Lydia Nabwire revealed how she marshalled support from the teaching fraternity, when she was KNUT County Women Representative, to have Mutua elected as Woman Reprentative.
