First Vice President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bessa Simons has been appointed as the new acting president by the Union’s Countrywide Executive Council (NEC).
This follows the expiration of the tenure of administration on August 11, 2019.
His appointment was confirmed at a meeting on Friday, August 30 and he is envisioned to direct the body right until the nationwide government elections just take put.
The NEC also appointed previous Next Vice President, Rev. Dr. Thomas Yawson as Acting 1st Vice President of MUSIGA in this interim time period.
According to Bice Osei Kuffour aka Obour, in line with the Union’s constitution, no president should exceed the 8-year term limit and since his time is up, he does not want to appear to be clinging on to power after the expiration of his constitutional mandate.
“With the announcement of the election roadmap last year, I had made plans to further my education and pursue other interests so my continued stay as the President of MUSIGA would be an abuse of the Union’s constitution and will also affect the Union’s operations since I can’t give my full attention,” he said.
