THE outgoing Prime Minister, Prof. Apolo Nsibambi, has said he is happy to have served in the Government and described his successor as a ‘distinguished and knowledgeable lawyer.’

“The new Prime Minister is also the secretary general of the National Resistance Movement party. Therefore, he has handled practical politics and has experience. When he speaks in Parliament, he is knowledgeable. I wish him success.” Nsibambi said.

Nsibambi told New Vision yesterday that he was grateful to President Yoweri Museveni for having appointed him to serve as Prime Minister, a position he held for 12 years.

“Earlier, I had served as minister for public service and minister of education and sports. This enabled me to participate in shaping the political destiny of Uganda,” Nsibambi added.

He thanked the permanent secretaries for providing support and thanked God for giving him wisdom and courage.

Nsibambi said as Prime Minister, he interfaced with MPs under the guidance of former Speaker and his deputy, Rebecca Kadaga.

He described Ssekandi as mature, versatile and professional and Kadaga as firm, knowledgeable and experienced.
