Over 185 communities along the Eastern Corridor Highway of the Northern region have petitioned the President and the Electoral Commission to create a new constituency out of Gushegu. 

The petitioners attribute the area’s lack of development to its distance from the capital and the large nature of the constituency.

They said the 2010 population census puts the total population of the Gushegu Constituency at 111, 259 and out of that figure, 61, 193 constitutes their proposed Nabuli-Nawugu Constituency.
