GULU LC5 chairman Col. Walter Ochora has advised the Acholi to ignore politicians deceiving them that the Government would grab their land.
Ochora, who is also the NRM LC5 candidate, was on Thursday campaigning at Kweyo primary school in Ongako sub-county, Omoro county.
â€œDo not let anybody confuse you that the government wants to grab your land so that you vote for him. The land politics is just to confuse people,â€ he said.
He said, â€œUgandan lands are ancestral and therefore it is up to the people to keep their land well.â€
â€œWhat is left now is for the people of Acholi to acquire land titles so that it becomes easy to protect their land,â€ he said.
Ochora said there were district land boards to oversee land issues in their areas.
He asked the Acholi to vote for the National Resistance Movement and President Yoweri Museveni for better services.
