All Saints University Lango gets two tractors worth Shs 800m

LIRA – The government has donated two tractors to All Saints University- Lango to boost its agricultural training program as they plan to open a Faculty of Agriculture.

The tractors worth Shs 800 Million were offered by the National Agriculture Advisory Services (NAADs) under Operation Wealth Creation (OWC) which is headed by Gen. Salim Salah.

Two months ago, during the graduation of more than 300 students at All Saints University, the OWC Chief Coordinator, Saleh through Amolatar woman MP Dr Agnes Apea donated Sh10m and pledged to offer two tractors.

The varsity located at St Augustine Community Center in Lira City has more than 200 students with 22 pursuing certificates in Agriculture.

The university was started in 2009 by Lango Diocese to provide a cheap and affordable higher institution of learning.

The University’s Chancellor who doubles as the Bishop of Lango diocese, Prof Alfred Olwa called upon the administration to use the machinery carefully to support development.

He urges the people in the Lango sub-region to embrace the Parish Development Model (PDM) as one of the programs to eliminate poverty in the households and generate income.

Health Minister, Dr Jane Aceng delivered the tractors to the university administration on 24th February at the University’s new site in Ireda, Boroboro road, Lira City East division.

She applauded All Saints University Lango for engaging in agricultural productivity in line with government’s policy of poverty alleviation and wealth creation strategies.

“I want to thank the All Saints University for introducing agricultural courses which are in line with the government policy of fighting poverty through farming and income generation,” she said.

The Vice Chancellor, Prof Anthony Cula said, the tractors will benefit both the university and the farmers in the Lango sub-region.

He urged the government through the Ministry of Education and Sports to support the university financially since they were badly hit by COVID-19.
