Arua district was prepared to send off Terego county to start a new administration under the NRM decentralization policy, after the political pronouncement by President Yoweri Museveni that the proposed Terego district will operate from July this year.
Wadri Sam Nyakua, chairman Arua district is nervously counting down to the deadline.
Nyakua brought the matter to the attention of the parliamentary committee on government assurance that has been following government pledges.
