Incumbent FUFA President, Eng Moses Magogo has been declared the only candidate who has successfully returned his nomination forms to run for presidency of the association.
This was announced on Monday afternoon by the FUFA Electoral Committee chairman Mathius Bwire who notified the press that Magogo is running unopposed ahead of the polls in September this year.
“Because of the powers given to me, I announce that Magogo Moses as the only candidate to fulfill and return the nomination forms to run for FUFA presidency. We will forward the list to the FUFA general assembly for elections,”Bwire said.
Two people including Proline Football Club Director Mujib Kasule and Katwe United cum Makindye West MP Allan Ssewanyana had expressed interest in unseating the incumbent however Mujib Kasule failed to get the required signatures while Allan Ssewanyana, even after he had a five-day extension granted, brought back a petition asking to be allowed to stand minus meeting the requirements.
This means that Magogo will be seeking a third term in office ahead of the Polls due August 21 in Mbale City.
Magogo will therefore need at least 50 percent-plus-one, which is 45 votes from the 88, to be announced the next FUFA President.
