Inconsistent Names Bite Agago Woman Aspirant

Robert Onoba, Agago district returning officer says Acan presented academic documents for both O’level and A’level bearing the name Janet Acan Francis but her National ID had Janet Acan.


The Electoral Eommission has declined to nominate Janet Acan, an aspirant for Agago Woman Member of Parliament over inconsistent names on her academic documents and National Identify card.

Robert Onoba, Agago district returning officer says Acan presented academic documents for both O’level and A’level bearing the name Janet Acan Francis but her National ID had Janet Acan.

Acan was first advised to correct the anomaly on the first day of the nomination exercise on Thursday, using NIRA Offices in Gulu, but failed to get the necessary assistance.

Onoba notes that Acan couldn’t be nominated because she failed to return with a substantive clarification on the inconsistencies in her names on the academic documents and her National ID.

Acan however told Uganda Radio Network in an interview that the discrepancies on her documents were as a result of fault from NIRA officials who didn’t capture her full names.

Aspirants who have successfully been nominated to contest for the district woman MP seat are Winny Okidi who is independent, Judith Franka Akello who is the FDC flag bearer, Lillian Abalo Ongom also contesting as an independent and Beatrice Akello Akori on the NRM ticket.

A total of 19 parliamentary aspirants were nominated to contest for Agago West constituency, Agago County and Agago Woman MP seat between Thursday and Friday.
