One of the presidential aspirants in the upcoming Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) presidential election, Ras Caleb Appiah, has called on the electoral body of the union to postpone the polls for the second time.
Speaking in an interview with the host of GH Entertainment Root Eye on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, the aspirant said the voters’ register meant for the election, is fraught with irregularities.
He is alleging that his name appeared thrice in the register with some others having the same challenge whereas some do not even have their names in the register.
He has therefore called on the leadership of MUSIGA to postpone the election for a month in order to correct the anomalies and irregularities he has made reference to.
In his view, any attempt to organize the polls would lead to legal tussles where people who are aggrieved, may challenge the results.
He is anticipating that some of the aspirants might go to court to seek an interlocutory injunction to prevent the election from being organized.
According to him, he has officially written to MUSIGA over the matter but has not received any response.
He said he was not the only aspirant who has identified the anomaly but some other aspirants have also identified the same problem.
The election was originally scheduled to be organized in June but was postponed to July 11, 2019.
He concluded by stating that the MUSIGA election is not a political election but rather, an NGO’s hence the need for leaders to do what was needful.
