Mr. Museveni congratulated all countrymen and women for making it to Christmas and coming to the close of the year.
In the agriculture sector, he said, it is increasingly clear that people are applying themselves to the fullest.
“The bumper sugarcane, maize, banana harvests and milk glut among others is evidence of this,” he said.
Museveni promised that his government will now do more to support value-addition to ensure Ugandans do not just sell these products in the raw form but also diversify their by-products to deal with the issue of excess harvests.
He said the farmers also must ensure they enforce good farming practices.
