He revealed that the general secretary for the party, Richard Todwong promised to give him a  job after his election in which they rigged but since then he has not received any positive Response from the National Resistance Government party secretariat and yet the loan he borrowed during the campaign is suffocating him.

The general secretary for National Resistance Movement party Richard Todwong   refuted the allegations and appealed to Obindu to remain calm as they work out some help for him.


The National Unity Platform Party vice president for West Nile sub region   Lina Zedriga advised Jackson Obindu to follow the  right procedure if he  wants to join National Unity Platform Party.


On 14th /11/2022 Jackson wrote to the secretariat office of National Resistance Movement Party   over the matter but he did not get any positive response.
