Sports Club Villa Presidential candidate Hon. Medard Lubega Ssegona has vowed to bring unity to the record Uganda Premier League holders when he ascends to the club’s top office.
This he said at Kati Kati restaurant on Monday morning (August 23rd) during the launch of his ambitious manifesto that will guide his supporters and those that he wishes to convert within the SC Villa faithful.
At the same occasion, the prominent city lawyer and Busiro-East Member of Parliament also rubbished the allegations inclining him to failure in the event that he wins the presidency courtesy of his lack of experience in running a football club.
Ssegona doesn’t seem to be oblivious to the unending leadership conflicts that have characterized the Jogoos for the past years and key to his plan is to create unity and harmony amongst the leaders and fans.
“I’m coming to unite the club, I want to bring everyone into the club irrespective of their tribe, gender or political affiliation. We are going to be driven by principles of passion, hardwork, and pride.” The lawmaker persuasively said.
He would also confidently reveal his ambitious plan to bring back the lost glory at the club guided by principles of transparency and ensuring that all departments of this gigantic club were functional.
“We want to continue building the SC Villa on the principle of being a community club. If we all stand together, all the others will kneel before us.” He added.
Explaining this, Medard used the platform to pledge his commitment to bringing back the big names that have formerly made the SC Villa administration. These include the likes of Kazibwe Kapo, Omar Mandela and Franco Mugabe.
He would also highlight the need for the club to own it’s facility which hasn’t happened since 1975 when Villa was founded.
The Jogoos have had to host their league games at Nakivubo, Namboole and most recently at Bombo Military Barracks playground. He lawyer has plans of changing the status quo.
“We want to build a home for the club. This home will have a stadium, training facility, offices and accomodation.” Medard assured.
To fulfil this rhetoric, Sseggona must have to beat his counterpart Dennis Mbidde Ssebugwawo on August 28th when the Villa faithful head to the polls. The good news for him though is that his lead in the opinion polls is staggering.
