Finally, stay healthy. Prevention is better than cure. Do not fragment your land. Jointly own land as a family and only share proceeds. Conserve the environment. Stop cutting trees, vacate wetlands. I thank you for supporting the NRM and turning up in big numbers to listen to me.

The country earns $500m from coffee but we immediately send it back to buy those clothes. We are going to stop this. We must only import what is essential and only if we cannot produce it locally.

Also for West Nile, the government will establish industrial parks to support the industrialization process and create jobs. For example since you grow cotton, a textile factory would be ideal here. We spend $71m importing second-hand clothes.

I have spoken about commercial farming and the four-acre model. I have given your leaders a book that explains all these concepts. I urge them to continue educating you on how you can best use your land to gain maximum returns. You must shift from subsistence agriculture.

The government can build a tarmac road but it will be a shame for those walking on it to do so minus shoes because of poverty. Government projects alone will not get you out of poverty, there must be individual effort and initiative.

This peace has enabled us undertake developments like roads, hospitals, schools, electricity, water among others. All these developments are good but we must now help the citizens improve their personal incomes, that is what this campaign is all about.

Madi region, which years back was a hotbed of conflict and its residents refugees in neighbouring countries, is now a bedrock of peace. Courtesy of the NRM, the region is so stable that it now hosts refugees from South Sudan and the DR Congo.

After meeting the leaders of Madi sub-region on Wednesday, yesterday evening I addressed wanainchi at Moyo Boys Primary School grounds in Moyo Town on the subject of wealth creation.

Finally, do not disable the land. In Arua, people cannot produce food, they buy it from Congo. Same with Kabale, all because of land fragmentation. Let families collectively own land and only share proceeds.

You, the leaders are now my priests. I request that you help me preach this gospel to our people. This meeting is an ordination exercise and you can now go forth and liberate our people from poverty.

For those with less than four acres, do poultry, pigs, grow onions and mushrooms. If you have six acres and above, you can do the activities of the four acres then add on crops like cotton. Cotton can bring money but when done on a big scale.

My guidance on the four-acre model is that one acre is for a high value cash crop like coffee, one for fruits, another for food crops and the fourth for pastures. In the backyard you keep a dairy animal, do poultry or piggery.

The NRM cannot be doubted on the development front. Our focus is now on kicking out household poverty (taako). We must create "Iloonyi" (wealth). This brings me to the four-acre model and commercial agriculture.

Atiak road is like the mouth, Adjumani and Moyo are the stomach. The food (road) will inevitably get to the stomach, it should not complain. They are looking for a contractor for the road. For the bridge across the Nile linking the two districts, it will wait for a while.

Still about development is the road from Atiak-Adjumani-Metu-Moyo then to Yumbe and Koboko. The government will build this road. When we fixed the Gulu to Atiak then to Bibia road, we were like a person who had put food in the mouth, his stomach is assured of being fed.

It is this peace which has enabled us have "Vwoozo" (development). Adjumani and Moyo are now connected to the national electricity grid. I know it's still weak current, just 33KV, but as we finish Karuma, it will get stronger.

That said, I must thank the people of West Nile for always supporting peace. Even at the height of the LRA conflict, they supported the peace efforts.

There are no Acholi or Madi diseases. Our people have common problems and leadership therefore must be about solving these problems. It is what the NRM does. Those preaching hate and sectarianism over Apaa, especially on the radios, must stop.

I listened to the leaders' concerns over the Apaa issue. I need to point out that the NRM has brought "ebwe" or "peace" but this peace can be lost when we turn to sectarianism. It is not right to divide our people on tribal lines.

This afternoon I met with leaders of Madi sub-region in Adjumani District as I continue with the wealth creation sensitization campaign. The Madi sub-region comprises Adjumani and Moyo districts.
