As the current Deputy Speaker Anita Among gears up for Speakership, leaders in Acholi want to maintain their position in the 11th Parliament by having Dr. Lillian Aber as the Deputy Speaker if Anita Among is elevated to the Speaker.
According to a tweet by Dr. Aber, the leaders urged her to take on the position if Among resigns to take on a higher position. This is to keep the Acholi strength intact after the passing on of Jacob Oulanya.
“As we mourn our brother JACOB Oulanya, we strive to maintain the standard in the region, replicate what he has done. To Acholi MP’s (APG) who have endorsed me for D/S position.I respect the decision as I wait for @NRMOnline CEC decision. We also hope, the region is considered,” Dr. Aber twitted.
Dr. Lillian Aber is the women’s representative for Kitgum District in the eleventh Parliament.
