The Greater Accra Regional Chairman of MUSIGA, Ras Caleb Appiah-Levi took Obour to court.

Many had pointed accusing fingers at Obour for misappropriating money in the past; but he was never legally challenged until now.

Ras Caleb filed the case at the Accra High Court suing Obour and 4 of his executives he worked with. He took to social media to address the suit against Obour who is currently contesting as the New Patriotic Party’s Parliamentary Candidate for Asante Akyem South.

“TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN”

RE: FORMER MUSIGA PRESIDENT OBOUR AND FOUR OTHERS SUED OVER MUSIGA CASH

I, MUSIGA Presidential aspirant Ras Caleb Appiah-Levi, and also the Regional Branch Chairman for MUSIGA Greater-Accra has institute legal proceedings against the former MUSIGA President Mr. Bice Obour Osei Kuffour and four others at the High Court of Justice for maladministration and misappropriation of funds of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA).

The four others include Acting MUSIGA President, Mr. Henry Bessa Simons, Acting 1st Vice President Rev. Dr. Thomas Harry Yawson, National Treasurer and Acting Administrator, Mr. Samuel Kofi Agyeman and Ahuma Bosco Ocansey, Director of Communications and Special Projects.

There are lots of allegations and counter allegations from majority of musicians and stakeholders of how MUSIGA has been mismanaged by the former President’s administration.

We cannot rule away some of these allegations especially when members think they are not treated well by the very people they elected to steer the affairs of the Union they all belong to; and the structures thereof.

No information is being released or communicated to the entire membership as to how the Union’s FUNDS were spent.

To this end, I Ras Caleb Appiah-Levi, found it prudent to request for a forensic audit, and leadership of service and accountability of the administration of the former MUSIGA president Mr. Bice Obour Osei Kuffour.

In leaving office as required, Mr. Bice Osei Kuffour didn’t present any handing over notes and render accounts or submit any internal audit report on the state of the Union that includes a comprehensive financial audited report of the affairs of the Union..

This, and other reasons why I as a member, an elected executive, and a presidential aspirant of the Union, am calling on Mr. Bice Obour Osei Kuffour and his cronies in administration to account for his leadership of service at MUSIGA from 2011 to date.

Based on the aforementioned reasons, a suit has been filed at the High Court of Justice, and a hearing date has been fixed for Wednesday, 10th June 2020 at 9:00 am.

I will officially release a comprehensive Press Statement in due course.

Thanks for your attention.

RAS CALEB APPIAH-LEVI,

MUSIGA PRESIDENTIAL ASPIRANT
