Ambolley Heads To Court Over MUSIGA Election Results

imagesOne of the failed aspiring presidential candidates for the Musician Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Gyedu Blay Ambolley, has threatened to challenge the outcome of Saturday’s congress.

According to him, he is heading to court to seek redress and challenge the results. The controversial musician claims that the election was not free and fair. The delegates and members of MUSIGA, last Saturday October 31st 2015, renewed the four-year mandate of the embattled president of the Union, Bice Osei Kuffour.

Obour, as he is commonly known, secured 88 out of the 133 votes cast to retain his seat. Renowned sound engineer Appietus also obtained 18 votes, while highlife legend Gyedu Blay Ambolley managed to secure 22 votes out of the total valid votes cast in the Koforidua Congress.

But one of the furious contestants, Ambolley, in an interview with Ashh FM Entertainment Zone on Sunday, said there is a cancer of ‘Mafiarism’ in the Musician Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) which overturned the progress of the elections.

The litigant musician said the ‘Mafiarism’ that took place before, during and after the congress was very appalling and must be condemned. He explained that “things are going on in a way that is not favouring the musicians or people who have contributed a lot to music in Ghana.”

He alleged that they were denied access to reach each delegate during the campaign season. “They gave as an album with the lists of the delegates but because of ‘Mafiarism’ they didn’t include the delegates number for us to contact them on phone”, he stressed.

“The election was rigged, I will meet my legal counsel tomorrow (Monday) to see how best we can challenge this electoral malpractices”.
