98

The regional and national elections of the National Union of Musicians in Ghana (MUSIGA) have been scheduled for Tuesday, October 10, following a recent court ruling on an injunction case filed against the union on August 7, 2023.

The electoral process faced a temporary suspension owing to a legal challenge brought forth by two MUSIGA members, Doe Kwablah Seyenam Nyamadi and Frederick Van Dyk.

The primary contention revolved around MUSIGA’s adherence to its constitution, particularly regarding the requirement for transparent financial reporting.

However, in August, the Accra High Court rejected the injunction, stating that the plaintiffs failed to demonstrate that they would experience “irreparable harm” if the elections proceeded. Consequently, they were instructed to pay damages of 10,000 cedis to the union.

In the race for the presidency is renowned Musician and acting President, Bessa Simons, and Ras Caleb Appiah Levi. Thomas Yawson, a gospel musician, is set to run uncontested for the position of 1st Vice President whilst Stella Ganyo and gospel artist Abena Ruthy are competing for the 2nd Vice President position.

The race for the General Secretary role features contenders Samuel Kofi Agyemang and Francis Derman Dogbatse.Chizzy Wailer, Gifty Oppong Ghansah, and Edward Edusa Eyison are running unopposed for the positions of National Organiser, Welfare Officer, and Treasurer, respectively.
