1) Sharing of power with central government – it implies locally taking genuine control of affairs, given that these powers cannot be taken away at the whim of the central government;
2) The freedom to go own way should that need arise – provides as safeguard against abuse of the federal constitution and freedoms enshrined therein;
3) Roots out for good the colonial/imperial designs for which Uganda was cobbled together to fit their imperial economic and political interests;
4)Restores the original politico-administrative entities as they were before the advent of the colonialism, and gives genuine recognition to local culture, social values, economic clout and political reality of the locals;
5) Restores the pre-colonial inter-ethnic relations, based on mutual respect and interdependency, now enhanced with a single national destiny as a unified country;
6) Enhances the feeling and sense of ownership of the federo entity and the resultant hardwork;
7) Local resources are genuinely used to benefit the local entity;
8) Brings services closer to the people in a way that is impossible under devolution, since federo affords greater leeway in terms of revenue collection and planning
9) Aids proper local planning, optimum budgeting and priority development projects;
10) Enhances local accountability and curbs central government corruption
11) Creates genuine stability in diversity, and therefore peace and prosperity, something that has eluded us for the past 47 years of an imposed colonial-inspired Uganda, that has failed to take into consideration the peculiarities of the peoples of Uganda as they were before the colonialists came. Just last month, Uganda was at it again with riots and destruction of property, and imflamation of ethnic feelings – this kind of scenario will likely be controlled by the federo system.
12) There will be no clamouring for the National Presidency since the real power will be at the level of local federo entities.
