Lugazi, 01 July, 2022 / 8:56 pm (ACI Africa).
A Catholic Bishop in Uganda has challenged those at the helm of Our Lady of Africa Senior Secondary Namilyango (OLAN) to foster their proven “skills of leadership” in the students enrolled at the private institution of learning.
In his message during his pastoral visit to the school that is located in Uganda's Seeta Mukono District, a region covered by Lugazi Diocese, Bishop Matthias Ssekamanya told the school management not only to be implementers but also “creators of different aspects of life” in their students so that they can be among those to propel the East African country to greater heights “tomorrow”.
“Director of the school and Board members, you are leaders; you are creative; I would like you to share the same with your students so that tomorrow, we get a good minister, president… give them the skills of leadership,” Bishop Ssekamanya said Thursday, June 30,
The Ugandan Catholic Bishop who was appointed the Local Ordinary of Lugazi Diocese in November 1996 and retired in November 2014 expressed his prayer that the mixed Secondary School “provides students who will take the leadership of this country in every aspect if possible.”
The 85-year-old Bishop who was at the school to confer the Sacrament of confirmation to students who had been prepared urged the staff members to act as “parents of the students, encouraging the students to make right choices in life.
