The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) is set to hold talks with the counsel of presidential aspirant Ras Caleb Appiah-Levi to settle the election dispute out of court.
The court on Monday, October 14, adjourned the hearing of the suit filed by Mr Appiah-Levi, against the association, over the conduct of National Executive Committee to November 6, 2019.
But Mr. Ahumah Bosco Ocansey, the Communications Director of the MUSIGA, told the Ghana News Agency that, they were set to reach an agreement with the counsel of Ras Caleb for an out of court settlement, which would be made formal when the case is called on November 6, 2019.
“So, we are taking steps to make decision possible and I’m sure the counsel would put this forward to the judge when the case is being heard,” he told Ghana News Agency.
This development would come as good news for the association, as they hope to elect new executives to spearhead their activities for the next four years.
Ras Caleb is contesting legendary musician Bessa Simons for the presidency after the end of Bice Osei Kuffour’s (Obour) eight-year reign as the President of the union.
Ras Caleb in his writ of summons filled in July, was seeking a declaration that the current voters register compiled by the Election Committee of the MUSIGA is not credible and same cannot in its flawed state be used for the conduct of the forthcoming 2019 National Executive Committee MUSIGA Elections to guarantee a fair and transparent outcome.
He also wanted the Election Committee to compile afresh an authentic and credible voter register for their elective congress.
