President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, on a recent visit to Adjumani District, distributed two tractors, disc harrows, and ploughs to teachers and health workers. These farming tools were handed over to the beneficiaries by State House Comptroller, Jane Barekye, during a ceremony at Biyaya Playground in Adjumani District.

President Museveni has consistently emphasized the importance of commercial agriculture and value addition as a means for Ugandans to stabilize their household incomes and create wealth. Jane Barekye, during the equipment handover, stated that the government aims to improve the livelihoods of salaried workers by encouraging them to engage in commercial agriculture alongside their regular employment.

Barekye further assured the recipients that President Museveni’s administration would continue providing such equipment to Ugandans, enabling them to generate additional income streams.

She praised President Museveni’s commitment to the well-being of teachers and health workers, stating, “Our President is a good and dedicated leader. He has provided you, the teachers and health workers, with these tractors so that you can engage in commercial agriculture to enhance your livelihoods.”

Barekye emphasized the government’s goal of establishing measures that allow people to increase their household income.

The distribution of agricultural machinery fulfills President Museveni’s recent promise to teachers and health workers in Adjumani District. Jessica Ababiku, the Adjumani Woman Member of Parliament, expressed her gratitude to the President for his support, recognizing its importance in enhancing the livelihoods of local professionals.

Adjumani Resident District Commissioner, Mr. Taban Peter Data, noted that the availability of two tractors would boost agricultural productivity in the district, leading to improved living conditions for healthcare workers and educators.

During the same event, the people of Adjumani presented a shield and a spear to Jane Barekye to be delivered to the President, signifying their continued trust and confidence in his leadership of the country.
