News reaching us indicates that Andrew Ojok, one of the late Jacob Oulanyah’s sons, has resigned his position at the National Information Technology Authority-Uganda (NITA-U) to join politics. Ojok seeks to replace his late father as the Omoro County MP.
Ojok has been a Senior Information Technology Specialist at NITA-U.
During Oulanyah’s burial last Friday, his brother, Francis Emanu, said, “Jacob has his first son, Ojok Andrew. Ojok is a very educated person. We are fronting Ojok to take on the legacy of his father. We want Ojok to stand in the by-election for Omoro. We want your full support.”
Also, the Speaker of Parliament, Anita Among, tasked MPs from northern Uganda to make Andrew Ojok, the new Omoro County MP.
Last week, the Electoral Commission set May 26 as the date for the Omoro County by-elections. The seat fell vacant following the death of the MP and former Speaker, Oulanyah.
