The Director of Electoral Operations in the National Electoral Commission, Protais Rumanzi, has challenged university students to own the forthcoming presidential elections slated for August this year.
Rumanzi made the call while giving a public lecture to students and staff of the School of Finance and Banking (SFB).
He said intellectuals have got a lot to offer in the national exercise which determines the path of the nation.
“You have necessary skills to listen, weigh and analyze ideas and make the right choices that best that suit your nation,” Rumanzi noted. “You know how far you have come and the path the nation is taking.”
Rumanzi also called upon the students to use their influence in society as opinion leaders to help their parents know what needs to be done and how best to do it.
